Edward Burns Talks About Writing His Newest Project

Edward Burns, director of such films as The Brothers McMullen, She’s The One, No Looking Back, Ash Wednesday and his latest film Nice Guy Johnny to name just a few is back at work at writing his newest project.

Instead of releasing the details of his new project to publications such as Variety or The Hollywood Reporter he decided to update everyone who follows him on his Twitter account.

The New York filmmaker says he’s currently writing a film that centers around a married couple in their 30’s living in New York.  For both members of this couple this is their 2nd marriage. The man is a trainer, the woman owns a restaurant. The man is a simple, happy person with little baggage while the woman is educated, uptight and wealthy. A major conflict in their marriage is their family and friends. Things get interesting when the woman’s sister whose going through a divorce and is from Los Angeles moves in with them.

Burns originally planned this film as a comedy but says

Was a comedy, but now feeling more like a dramedy.

Burns while coming up with the idea asked his Twitter followers to send in ideas and stories.  Including his followers he even asked them for title ideas.

Burns has not updated on his progress nor when he plans to shoot this newest project. Don’t expect this project to get released in theaters as Burns told indiewire recently regarding releasing his films the normal way:

the prospect [of theatrical release for future projects] is unlikely

I’ve been a fan of Edward Burns for a while now.  I really like his work and I think his knew way of do it yourself filmmaking is very interesting and will soon catch on. I also think it’s interesting that instead of giving the information to Variety or some other publication he went onto Twitter to tell his fans. Do you think this project sounds interesting? What do you think of Burns using Twitter to update his fans about his current project?

For the latest on this project keep checking back.
