Allan Jackson has produced just three low-budget films in his 15-year career, but that doesn’t stop him from claiming that 90% of what he sees and hears in daily life “should be a movie.”
“Holy shit!” he recently exclaimed. “That story about you buying a car should be a movie!”
Other things Jackson thinks should be a movie include your sister, the song he just heard on the radio, paper clips and that news story about the dog that saved a baby from drowning.
“It could be really cool and totally four-quadrant,” he said multiple times today. “I need to get my contact at Fox on the phone. Hey – that should be a movie! A guy makes a call to an exec about a film idea! It’s ironic and everything.”
