So I got this idea for a movie. A journeyman (re: average) major league baseball player (Ed Brock) gets on a hot streak and subsequently announces to the media that the streak is the result of his selling his soul to the devil (thereby becoming known as "Faust" Eddy Brock). Theres a few other wrinkles involved (an opposing star player who loses his skills as part of the deal, a city going wild for the man who was willing to sell his soul for their pennant hopes, religious nuts, ect). Its a solid idea. I pitch it to my wife. She says, "good scenario but whats the story"? I says "huh"? She says "whats the moral? Why would I watch it?" I says, "cause your my wife". Chuckles ensue.
Its true though. Too often I got a good scenario but a story it is not so much. Will have to think this one through. It's times like these I wish I had a good collaborator.
