Cornbread Crumbles: All the Names Have Been Changed

What You Should Know About Our New Film – Part One So we have announced our next feature film, The Cornbread Cosa Nostra, a 1980s set crime thriller about the Dixie Mafia.

I take this as something to be proud of actually: what major film company doesn’t have a gallery of projects that didn’t see the light of day? With all certainty, I will die at some point leaving a bunch of scripts for someone to make, throw away, or keep collecting dust. For now, here’s a little bit on each of these films which have yet to make it to the silver...
