Dear Mr. Antoine Fuqua, please make Night Biters into a movie

Dear Mr, Fuqua please consider
Night Biters as a future project

Your projects are gritty, filled with characters that are marginalized yet smart, resourceful

and whether you agree with it or not their own moral code

No other director can capture the many complex elements of street life as you have in film and video.

The urban purity of Gangsta Paradise, the Replacement Killers, Training Day and your current film Brooklyn's Finest are testaments to your skills

Night Biters a Tale of Urban Horror would be a departure but its clear from King Arthur that you are willing to take risks, I assure you a supernatural vampire tale with heroic teens from multi-ethnic backgrounds would pay off handsomely
Mr. Fuqua I realize this is blatant but I believe in my books and would love to see them on the big screen directed by the best

I can be contacted here

Thank you for your time

Beauty of the Omo

On the borders of Ethiopia, Kenya and Sudan, the lower Omo Valley is a lost world. Far from any city and with a cruel climate, this land remains one of the wildest in Africa. This magnificently produced, two-volume publication is a superb chronicle of the Omo Valley's fast-vanishing and excruciatingly hard way of life, focusing on the fifteen or so ethnic groups who have lived there since time immemorial. Hans Silvester's photographs, as beautiful as they are fascinating, are accompanied by a text that documents the culture and daily life of the Omo tribes. 2 volumes presented in a slipcase: Volume I Customs and Ceremonies; Volume II Face and Body Decoration. 304pp, UK. THAMES & HUDSON. click here for more

This trailer gives a deeper glimpse into the plot.  This time around, Tony Stark’s urban sidekick gets his own suit of armor, then they band together to fight the Russian version of themselves.  When you think about it, it’s a lot like Rocky IV.  But I’m okay with that for the following reasons:

"A" Team of Losers & Takers

This summer three action buddy movies will be on the big screen. One original, one TV and one comic adaptation. My money's on the original

The Takers
Plot A group of bank robbers find their $20 million plan interrupted by a hard-boiled detective.

The A-Team
The 80's TV show gets an update Plot A group of Iraq War veterans looks to clear their name with the U.S. military, who suspect the four men of committing a crime for which they were framed

The Losers
Adapted from the Virtigo comic book of the same name Plot: After being betrayed and left for dead, members of a CIA black ops team root out those who targeted them for assassination.

Why I picked The Takers because whereas A-Team and Losers appear to be targeted at males who want action. The Takers is eye-candy for the ladies, I first heard about it in November of last year and the woman who mentioned it can't wait for it's release. That kind of buzz is normally a good thing. She's not the only one.  I imagine there will be many "Takers". Interesting to note that Losers and Takers both star Zoe Saldana and Idris Elba
