You also may recall in a recent series of blogs that I started writing a screenplay for a movie musical version of "Jaws," the Spielberg classic from 1975.
Their show is called "Bruce," after the nickname of the mechanical shark from the movie. Now, I had no idea this project was being developed when I started up my version (which I've abandoned: I have other stuff I need to do; and I wasn't really serious about it anyways). And I'm not saying I've been ripped off again (they announced their show in July of 2021; I started my version in early 2022). Maybe I'm saying "great minds think alike"? Wink, wink.
But what I am saying (again); as I've said it before: things zip through the zeitgeist. That's how you end up with three versions of the same story in three different movies released at the same time. Or a period in the culture where a certain theme gets a lot of play. Like remember in the early 70's there were all those songs about evil, witchy women?
Witchy Woman by the Eagles. Rhiannon by Fleetwood Mac. Evil Woman by E.L.O. and so on and so on...
