After announcing last week that Manka Bros. would be abandoning its tentpole strategy to focus on lower budget, more interesting films, I have decided based the insane opening of “Wonder Woman” – that we will resume our tentpole strategy at Manka Bros. Films.
I don’t know what I (and, the real people to blame, the corporate stooges who backed me up on this idea) was thinking.
Actually, I do. I was thinking “Damn, Scotch is so delicious!”
But on the long flight home from the Seychelles, I came to the conclusion that it’s impossible to craft a solid theatrical production and distribution strategy after drinking a bottle of Scotch 10,000 miles away from the office.
So… here’s the drill…
The folks at Manka Highbrow, Manka Dogme, Manka Docs, Manka Mumblecore and Manka Ultra should continue to produce the crap that you a-holes pump out every year.
The tentpole movies from Manka Bros. Films (mostly MC Comics and the Magpie franchise) that were deep in development should be picked up again (I hope you didn’t delete all the files!), and those movies that were pushed out of production should resume shooting immediately.
Those expecting to have free time this weekend, should cancel any plans and work work work instead.
If anyone brings up my previous blog in front of me, you will be fired.
