I love the J&S idea.
I also think Foz should be in on the act.
(Writing that is)
Well does this mean I should get started on a casino scene and post it here? er.....what?
ooh i just want to be an idea person! i can't write to good, but i have an overactive imagination!
love the pepe lawyer idea! i could just see him trying to persuade a female judge!
the kermit fozzie idea is awesome...fozzie can tell jokes to the inmates and we can see our favorite old geezers picking him apart...gotta love 'em....
write more later i'm tired
Yes! It makes much more sense for Fozzie to stand up for Kermit. Now that Fozzie is back in the front lines, use him! But I also like the idea of Kermit being in a suite and Fozzie being in another cell. Fozzie can say "I wish they had hamburgers' and Kermit says "I wish I could finish my steak" The Gonzo and Rizzo break in to save Kermit and Fozzie, Gonzo is caught and spends the movie trying to break out, Rizzo finds Kermit and stays in the suite and eats all the great food. I think Piggy would say take me too but when they say ok she would be like "I was joking ahaha" Now that I know it's in Vegas, maybe no court scene, but a Pepe lawyer would be hilarious! Maybe Pepe try's to get information too. He hides on a shrimp platter but when the bad guy picks Pepe up he says "I love shrimp" and Pepe yells at him "I am a King Prawn. ok? How many times do I have to say this... uh oh"
Rowlf should be the piano player for Piggy's act in the night club as well as the one for Jonny. Rowlf and Piggy would share insults of course Um...Scooter! I like the idea of Scooter taking a second job as a delivery boy who unknowingly works for the Mob. It fits him perfectly. I don't know about the Pro and Anti Kermit groups though. That could just get silly. Maybe just leave this case to the muppets.
Oceans 11 Muppet Style
I think the perfect sendoff for any sort of Vegas themed Muppet movie would be Oceans 11. Remember that calendar picture of Fozzie hacking into a computer(The Mission Improbable parody?)
I think you could have a motley crew of like Gonzo with some Brad Pitt slick outfit, with Kermit as the George Clooney character. Piggy would be the Julia Roberts character...maybe Johnny Fiama could be the Andy Garcia character. And then you could have Digit hacking into the casino mainframe. Anyways, just an idea.
OK Scooter I have a whole buch of questions but I'll e-mail them to you.
I think that for now the core group should write up bere bone out lines so we can decide on those and the caracters first before we write up the script.
I also have problems with the casino thing, would it not make more sence for Beauregard, Cheif, and such to work in a kind of home-type bussiness with a few loyal customers, ie: Kermit and gang.
Aalso I think that they should all be a bit younger, like this is before he hires everyone for the muppet show. There would have to be a different motive for the framing, but it would be cool if Beauregard is kind of leaning on his mop listening to Kerm's conversations and takes pity on him, so tries to work the problem out with the kitchen staff
I'll e-mail you.
E-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send you a e-mail outlining my ideas and questions about the system of writing.
Somone may want to check this out:
Sorry Scooter don't e-mail there. Mine is Beauregard97@hotmail.com
I am such a ______.
Alright, guys! It'd be great if you could keep posting ideas. So far, most of them have been pretty good!
I don't really like the courtroom idea, but everyone else seems to. We'll keep it in, but probably won't take up a lot of time as we do have a lot of story to cover.
Salmoto, you want to work on some stuff?
sarah_yzma! Great avatar! You know where I can get one of Super Scooter?
Great stuff, guys.
Scoot have you e-mailed Foz? We've got to get this show on the road!!!
Yes, I e-mailed him. I e-mailed you too. He hasn't responded yet.
Okay, so we're each writing our own stuff and sending it to each other to get it picked apart, correct? Does that mean a whole script each, or parts of the script?
I checked out that screenwriting site, nothing I didn't already know, but I think it'll help a little more as to where each part of the storyline should take place. But, I'm not spending 30$ a month on it!
E-mail me back with your stuff, Beau. We'll figure this out.
Keep posting new ideas, guys!
Here's a list of our main characters, and guest Muppets:
Kermit The Frog (main)
Fozzie Bear (almost as major as Kermit)
Gonzo The Great
Rowlf The Dog
Pepe the King Prawn
Rizzo The Rat
The Electric Mayhem (including Lips)
Secondary and Guest Muppets (non-important roles, but there):
That purple guy with the big yellow eyes
Sam The Eagle
Marvin Suggs (with Muppaphone)
Alright. I know I left a lot of characters out. I forgot them. (sorry) Please list any additions to this list.
I'll make an outline for the script by the end of the week.
Oh! And, I'm not going to be here this weekend, so, continue without me. Thanx!
Quite right, nether am I!!! But the link said *FREE*
I think that each of the core group should write outlines and we'll share them round.
I'll begin on mine imediatly.
You do yours.
Anyone else can do one to, then I think we should share those around the core group and we can each make changes to them, until all of ours a similar.
You put your scenes into mine, I put mine into yours. You drop some of my scenes, I drop some of yours.
You see I was thinking if YOU write the outline by yourself you may leave out all the bits I thought of last night at two in the morning.
What do you think of the "Before the muppet show" idea? I think it's good. (Though it would rub of the campain groups.)
I've started mine too, just let me know when I should stop and I'll leave it all right here.
Good, Good, Good. Things are progresing nicely
I'll try writing my own as well, the only things I don't like are it being a prequel and the Muppets (Electric Mayhem) being involved with the Mafia. The Mafia should be the bad guys.
Don't worry I don't want them mixed up in the mafia.
In my version, things are quite different.
Remember that at the moment we are only writing the outline, so we can all be writing the same thing.
I don't want to put you guys down (I really don't) but isn't that story very very similar to «The Great Muppet Caper»?
Not really. In the Great Muppet Caper, the gang was investigating a jewle robbery. The whole movie was about finding out who did it and then catching the theif before he struck again, This story is similar in that there is a crime, but that's about it. It's more like Who Framed Roger Rabbit, but even that movie isn't all that similar. Any idea is going to sound similar to another. I think it's as original as any other movie. And I don't think the muppets will be involved with the mafia on purpose. Scooter will be a unknowing delivery boy, the Electric Mayhem, well I don't know where they fit into this whole mob thing but I'm sure they won't be the bad guys. There has to be someone on the inside, but they will work for the good guys.
