    New Line tags 'Wild' pitch for Sandbox Ent.

    New Line Cinema is readying an urban feature set in the world of graffiti as the studio has picked up Michael Bacall and John Morgan's pitch "Wild Style," with Noah Emmerich's Sandbox Entertainment attached to produce. Although the project currently shares the same title as the 1982 hip-hop docudrama that became a cult favorite, this "Wild Style" is not a remake of that film. The project's specific log line is being kept under wraps, but it is said to be in the vein of "8 Mile." "It is set in this real Los Angeles underground counterculture society that is populated by some truly incredible artists," said Emmerich. "And Michael has come up with a beautiful story that chronicles a young man's journey in that world." (Josh Spector) FULL STORY

    New Line tags 'Wild' pitch for Sandbox Ent.

    New Line Cinema is readying afalse depiction urban feature set in the world of graffiti(from an not knowing a thing about graf ass mofo perspective) as the studio has picked up Michael Bacall and John Morgan's pitch "Wild Style," with Noah Emmerich's Sandbox Entertainment attached to produce. Although the project currently shares the same title as the 1982 hip-hop docudrama that became a cult(correction: <span style='color:black'>"CULTURE"</span>)favorite, this "Wild Style" is not a remake(THANK GOODNESS) of that film. The project's specific log line is being kept under wraps, but it is said to be in the vein of "8 Mile." "It is set in this(SUPPOSED TO BE) real Los Angeles underground counterculture society that is populated by some truly incredible artists," said Emmerich. "And Michael has come up with a beautiful story that chronicles a young man's journey in that world." (Josh Spector)

    i don't think there is much damage to do in the way of what the 'mainstream' thinks of this culture.

    hollywood was destined to make a graff movie eventually, and it's stupid. but what will make me furious are the people who learn terminology incorrectly from the film or who are going to get the idea that it's a good idea for everyone to start writing. the movie wouldn't matter if everyone wasn't so retarded.


    actually, it'd be amazing if the movie included the kid getting sucked into 12oz and not painting anymore, and then his friends start giving him shit for it, and he retreats into channel zero rather than have real conversations with people...fuck. that wouldn't be funny at all.

    It's gonna be like Fast and the Furious. People saw that movie and Illegal Street Racing became pretty fucking popular. Now graffiti will be some huge fad with highschool preps. But I don't know what I'm talking about sometimes. I'm kinda talking out of my ass at the moment.

    I'd see it. I knew it would happen, i dont really care about the media pimping graffiti. What are you gonnna do? If it happens, it happens, oh well. I dont really care about kids jumping on the band wagon either because everyone out here considers themself a "tagger" already....im used to that, it cant get any worse.


    ...plus the movie might be good for a laugh....

    I hate the perspective of graffitti as art........it's not.
    Everyone will think it is when this movie comes out.

    Fuck that, i would plan on putting stickers on every car outside the movie theater but that would only affect the people in my direct area and the peopel in that time frame, thus leaveing a majority of peopel around the nation to view such a dispicable film and think bullshit of what graffitti is...........hmmmmm........anybody want to start a little revolution if this movie comes out with me.

    let me know.

    uh, am i the only one who has noticed that graffiti has been getting "pimped" for several years now? Advertisements, shirts at hot topic, little rubber "pieces" on the soles of shoes, etc...

    Dude, graffiti is like skateboarding for chrissakes. Every few years it gets super popular for about 5-6 months and then it dies down again for another 3-4 years until popular culture squeezes the juice outta the hottest thing at the moment. Then, everyone goes rummaging through the closet, digs graffiti out, dusts it off and then presto! Quick fix for an increasingly hollow and tepid popular culture.

    Seriosuly....anything that is elusive, "underground", on the down-low.....they pay people to look for new trends so the big corps can exploit shit to the utmost. Stop bitching, this is nothing new.

    i hope we get to see AWR/MSK cameos if this is indeed gonna be in L.A. CBS?
