PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS… WITH PRESTON WHITMORE Writer/director Preston Whitmore talks Hollywood game.
Presented by Electronic Urban Report
Writer/director/producer Preston Whitmore has a pretty impressive film resume, but the young Hollywood-ite is staying grounded, modestly explaining that he's not doing anything extraordinary.
But fans of his
films might beg to differ.
In particular, Whitmore
is the man behind last year's holiday hit 'This Christmas,' a family film that many hope has a follow-up.
"That's up to the studio," Whitmore told EUR's Lee Bailey.
explained that he
originally wrote the script for 'This Christmas' years ago.
It was initially a family reunion picture.
However, the studio bowed out on the script and Whitmore
went on to his
next project, 'Crossover.' "Then they came back to me and said they wanted to make it," he
"But then Lions Gate made 'Madea's Family Reunion' so I changed the setting to be around Christmas.
Bottom line, however, the 'This Christmas' story is rather aged for Whitmore
As an artist, that's something I did five years ago," he
said, but admitted that he
was not completely finished with the concept.
