Several years ago, a movie writer got in touch with us here. He was writing the script for a movie tentatively to be called whiteout. The last I heard from him was back in 2004 when he had heart surgery.
Glenn and I both had a lot of fun with it, correcting minor details. He wanted to fly to Vostok in mid winter with a C-130. Glenn pointed out the hydraulics would freeze.
It’s going to be interesting to see whether our input helped.
I’ve written the scriptwriter to see if he is still around. We’ll see what happens.

HI name was Alex, and I kept in touch with him for more than a year afterwards. He ended up going to Barrow, Alaska to get a feel for icy, snowy conditions. Uh-huh. A short time later he finished that screenplay and started on another, a horror pic which I haven’t seen out yet — dunno if it was ever produced. He sent me a rough draft of the script (shhh!). Very fun.May 24, 2008 at 10:35 pm #5691
He probably did the movie ‘Thirty Days of Night’, a vampire flick set in Barrow…May 26, 2008 at 10:07 am #5692
The message I sent him bounced back. the email address is no longer valid.

I have been thinking for some time that there should be a movie about life at McMurdo Station. Not anything like the Hertzog film. More along the lines of MASH. Better yet “The Three Stooges Go South for Vacation”. Atlas has a lock on the role of Curly, Mike could be Larry, and not sure who would be Moe?

Hey we are talking about a low budget production here. No money for hair stylists…..so the part is made for you Atllas Looks like Glenn is speaking up for the part of Moe.

My hair isn’t thick and curly enough. Rox, will have to stand in for me.May 27, 2008 at 10:07 am #5698
Has anyone seen “Ice People”. It opened in SF a few weeks back with good reviews, but I haven’t heard anything else.

Hello Mike. Long time no hear. I know. And I know this is not along this topic. But just wanted to say Hi and let you in on some news I just received and see what your opinion was. I received an email from Anthony Dixon from HireRite. I had to fill out an application online that took about an hour. Does it sound like I might be moving on up to the next step toward being hired?

Rick I started your own thread for questions. I answered there.

Kurt Russell needs to be in any good Ice movie. And flame throwers, lots of flame throwers. I’m already disappointed. 😉
Coincidentally, I wrote to Alexander a few days ago for other reasons. I think I have a good email address for him but he hasn’t answered back yet. I notice his name isn’t listed as one of the screenwriters; he mentioned that someone else took over the writing.
