Steve Jobs could not have created the personal computer working inside Hewlett Packard or another similar company. The existing movie studios are like HP. Truly revolutionary cinema would ask not just for acting chops but also an entrepreneurial spirit. The paradigms of racism and sexism that are the firm frameworks of the current corporate arrangements, both in terms of movie production houses and their twin counterpart, the mass media, especially television, would make truly revolutionary work impossible.
A successor franchise to Star Wars, not just in terms of science fiction, technology fiction, but also social science fiction, imagining the woman of tomorrow, is necessarily an anti racism idea. The intelligent life they have been looking for is in Africa and India; the vast cosmos was created so you may feel special, so humanity may feel special. A successor franchise to James Bond, a Cold War relic, is just a nod to geopolitics. The post World War II world order is over. A successor franchise to Jason Bourne, which had a shelf life of a total of three movies anyways, is that Bourne is slightly biologically enhanced; there is massive room for enhancement in the sociological sphere. You would end up with more dramatic results. Would make for great entertainment. It would be a major departure from current ground reality.
The earth is your only home. If God wanted to destroy humanity, He would send one meteor to earth, and another to Mars at the same time, if you might also be on Mars.
I have already started to flesh out the concept. I have no plans to approach any existing movie studio. I am going to create a new company to cocoon the movie franchise. I am going to create a family of companies anyways. What's one more company?
A truly global release would be big money.
Racism is Lucifer's final grip on humanity. That grip is to be broken. That is why I am here. That, and a few other reasons.
Your racist arguments are being supplied to you by Lucifer. He gets insider your head and talks. And you listen.
Sometimes, or maybe often times, the best way to break the glass ceiling is by walking out of the glass house. It's called entrepreneurship. It's called out of the box thinking.
I think people in general vastly underestimate the non movie aspects of Priyanka. Look at it this way. Here's the first person who reached the heights of Bollywood, the largest movie industry in the world by sheer production volume, and then quickly also reached the heights of Hollywood, the largest movie industry in the world by dollar volume, without losing her stature in Bollywood. This has never happened before. And she is a college dropout along the lines of Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. She is a trailblazer. She is not even a dropout. She completely skipped it. She is obviously a very smart person (she was top of class at high school, and angling to be an engineer when her mother sent out her portfolio, and next she knew she was first Miss India, and then Miss World), a voracious reader more happy in a bookstore than in the stereotypically female shopping destinations.
Time magazine captured it though. The best is yet to come. I look at her trajectory and see she is going to be the top paid actor in Hollywood. It will happen sooner than most realize.
There are a lot of women (and men) around the world who want the idea of a career woman to no longer be news. Her role in Quantico (which is now seen all over the world, as on Indian television) speaks to them.
Art feeds society. Society feeds art. It is a non stop two way conversation. In that I think of movies as an art medium uniquely positioned to recreate gender roles and help make them more equal across the board.
