It occurred to me today that my movie will be the complete opposite of View From the Top... a sort of Anti-View From the Top, if you will. My protagonist's goal will be to get OUT of the airline industry, not into it. And she won't be a goody-goody one-dimensional character either (oh, but I forgot, Gwyneth's character was trying to rise above her trailer park upbringing--so I guess that would make her two-dimensional). I love Gwyneth Paltrow, but that movie really SUCKED! I went to see it with a few flight attendant friends when it came out back in 2003, and we were extremely disappointed (some of us more than others)! There were a few good lines and performances in it, but we could tell it wasn't written by someone in the industry (and written by a guy, at that... I mean, come on, a galley cat-fight scene--Gag!) Everybody in the industry knows that Gwyneth's airline ("Royalty", I believe) would not have lived up to her glamorous expectations and she would have been quickly corrupted.
Anywho, let me not bitch about that movie anymore. The Queen of Sky Blog is gonna be the REAL DEAL! I never thought I would get the opportunity to write a screenplay based on my book, so I'm very grateful (thanks, Hiltz Squared!) and plan on making this the best flight attendant movie EVER!!! 8-)
