Ridley Scott and Kevin MacDonald To Make YouTube Documentary
Have you always wanted to co-direct a movie with Ridley Scott but have been prevented from doing so by your crippling fear of 30 Odd Foot of Grunts guitarist Russell Crowe? Good news. Scott and State of Play director Kevin MacDonald are partnering with YouTube and Sundance to give everyday sacks like you the chance at finding your inner filmmaker.
The documentary will be called Life In a Day, and feature video entries from DIY filmmakers around the world. The only real guideline is that you need to shoot and submit your footage on July 24th, 2010. Everyone whose footage is selected will receive a co-director credit in what is surely to be the longest opening credits sequence ever. This idea has actually sparked the imagination of several directors. In fact, Uwe Boll's firsthand experience with Epic Fails has him in talks to direct Break: The Movie (Ed. Note: Lie), and Brett Ratner is spending a lot of time on ChatRoulette. A frightening amount of time actually. (THR)
