These are just two of many of the films on Amazon Studios’ development slate, and I expect we’ll be seeing more of these elevator pitch videos in the near term. Other projects have titles like: The Alchemist Agenda, I Think My Facebook Friend is Dead, ZvG: Zombies Vs Gladiators, For Sale By Superhero, Touching Blue, Burma Rising, Dreamcatchers, Ashes to Ashes, 12 Princesses, Hiber, Children of Others, Original Soldiers, It Came in the Mail, Soldier Boys, The 70-Year Itch, Origin Of A Species, Gideon’s Law, WizardsQuest: The Princess Queen, Seed, Animal Heads, The Detourist, Blackburn Burrow, Romeo, Juliet & Rosaline, and Leon.
