I really like the movie The Big Chill and I find myself wanting to write a Generation X homage to it. I like the idea of a group of old acquaintances getting together for a specific reason and while The Big Chill is about death, my screenplay is about life. I’m thinking it’s going to be about a 50th birthday instead of a funeral like The Big Chill. I am also toying with the idea of a wedding, but there are added complications to a wedding that might make it a bit more difficult to use. And, yet, a wedding is also ideal in some ways. I guess a wedding has more potential for drama. Maybe. I just don’t know at this point. I may sketch the story out as a wedding and see what happens.
Anyway, here’s a video of me thinking the story out.
