Silver and Black: The Making of The Last Boy Scout


The Last Boy Scout

Tagline: They're two fallen heroes up against the gambling syndicate in pro sports. Everyone had counted them out.
But they're about to get back in the game.

Released: 13th December 1991 by Warner Bros
Starring: Bruce Willis, Damon Wayans
Directed by: Tony Scott
Production Budget: $29M (Amount in 2017: $52.3M)
 Box Office: $59.5M (Amount in 2017: $103.3M)

-----------

On paper, The Last Boy Scout looks like it was assembled by committee. Behind the scenes were a talented writer, a hugely successful producer and a director with a flair for action and an eye for detail. In front of the camera, one of the most popular stars of the moment. The studio couldn't believe their luck, and were convinced they had one of the biggest hits of the year on their hands - if only all the egos involved could get it made.

New Writing Project

Hi Everyone,

With 80 From the 80s now complete, I've embarked on a brand new writing project. Currently only the first chapter is complete, and I'm hard at work (really?) on the next. It's movie based again, but currently has no central theme other than that, to tie it all together. 

I'll be posting chapters and extracts here in the near future. I don't have a finish date in mind, but I'd like to have the book done by the first quarter of 2018. 

I hope you'll join me on this journey
