Manka Bros. Will No Longer Hire Anyone Over 30

Good morning. As of today, Manka Bros. will no longer hire anyone who is 30 or over. Over the past year or so, I have come to realize it would be a strategic blunder for myself and the Manka Bros. shareholders to produce any new content or develop any new distribution platforms for anyone other …

Again, F The Academy Awards

I can’t believe I got up at 5:30 this morning for nothing. Bob Iger gets up at 5:30 every morning to hang upside-down from a bar like a bat. I’m not a whack job like he is – I sleep until a normal hour. But I got up like an idiot expecting to hear that …

Dear Hollywood Foreign Press – F Off

JESUS CHRIST! Who the fuck do you have to blow or bribe in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to getting a stupid Golden Globe nomination?! These nominations are abominations. “Birdman” – seriously? “The Imitation Game”? What the hell is a Benedict Cumberbatch! Is that a Charles Dickens book?

Manka Bros. To Produce 157 Movies Based On MC Comics Characters Through 2050

Good afternoon. The title pretty much says it all. THIS SHIT IS REAL!  So come on, Comic Con geeks – let your heads commence to explode. THIS IS A HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT and a financial commitment unparalleled in the history of Hollywood (and way more impressive than DC Comics or Marvel’s puny little movie announcements). We’ve talked …

Manka Bros. Is Not Attending The Sundance Film Festival

To all the acquisition and distribution executives at Manka Highbrow, Manka Dogma, Manka Docs and the new Manka Mumblecore – due to the shitty year you all had in 2011, you will not be attending the Sundance Film Festival this year. If you desperately feel the need to attend in order to bid on a movie starring Patricia Clarkson and William H. Macy about people who have no idea …

The Producers Guild Can Suck It

And while I’m at it – the Hollywood Foreign Press can suck it, too! So, this morning I returned to the studio from a month long vacation at my house in the Seychelles – feeling relaxed, very tan and ready to make 2012 the biggest and most profitable year in Manka Bros. history. I even …

Content Is Still King – But Only BIG Content

Theatrical Group – a complete strategy shift in the way Manka Bros. develops, produces and distributes films for all …
