Broken Projector: Kill It With Fire (w/ Special Guest Host Gary Whitta)

Abomination

Gary Whitta

Gary Whitta got a big break with The Book of Eli, a spec screenplay where he doesn’t so much save the cat as he kills it and cooks it over a spit within the first few pages. Now he’s coming off writing for one of the stand-alone Star Wars movies, he’s working with Mark Millar on Starlight, and his debut novel “Abominationis available for pre-order through an innovative publishing platform. It has everything in the above image and more.

Whitta joins me this week as our special guest co-host (Geoff is on assignment in Kazakhstan), and we discuss the dominance of The Empire Strikes Back, the slightly ironic relationship movies have to comic books now and why he might not have done the very thing that brought him success knowing what he knows today.

Things get educational, so grab a notepad and a splashguard.

You should follow Gary (@garywhitta), the show (@brokenprojector), Geoff (@drgmlatulippe) and Scott (@scottmbeggs) on Twitter for more on a daily basis.
