THE CHALLENGE: Make an existing comedy into a drama, or vice-versa.
DETAILS: Pick an actual movie, from any era. Re-pitch it as a comedy if it’s considered a drama, OR if you’ve chosen a drama, re-pitch it as a comedy. Stick as closely as possible to the actual characters and plot of the real movie, but completely change the tone…. and do it in 150 words maximum (down below in comments).
I didn’t expect it to, but it’s exercising portions of my brain that haven’t had that much of a workout lately. I’m trying to put something together involving either I Am Legend or Brain Donors, but nothing’s gelling yet.
