Letter Campaign to oust Bryan Singer From the Superman Franchise
Posted in the Superman Forum
#1 Aug 5, 2007
At present there is a ground floor movement to try to persuade Warner Bros. to get rid of Bryan Singer.
I'm totally behind this effort to oust Singer.
Singer's the wrong man for Superman.
He isn't a Superman fan, He's a Donner fan.
We don't need a "Donner" re-hash of Superman.
So, in the effort to get rid of him, here is some vital information..
1. What do I write?
You've got to voice your displeasure but you've got to say it in terms that relate to the Studio execs in terms of Box office returns.
By itself, The Studio heads most likely doesn't care what we think about giving Superman an illegitimate kid as a horrible creative decision.
What they DO care about is how Singer's combined creative decisions as a whole have alienated a broader, wider potential audience.
How it adversely affected the box office results, or how poor word of mouth led to the film being the slowest ever to reach the $200 million mark.
Similar recent big budget films are doing that kind of business in 1 week.
Let them know why you care about the character, but don't go overboard in that regard either. Focus more on how Singer is wrong for the franchise, and how a better-suited director could make the franchise more successful.
Just as important as what you write is the tone of how you say it.
If you bring up good points but come across like you're yelling at the execs, they'll tune you out and chalk you up to being some crazed fanboy.
Your letters should have a reasonable and even tone to them. You should sound sympathetic to the studio's financial goals, and be constructive in your criticisms about why Singer blew it.
Brevity is also a bonus. Say what you have to say on 1 or 2 pages and then be done with it. These people read enough scripts as it is, don't send them something of a similar size.
If you've already written a letter and think others could use it as a template for their own, click the link to this site,
contact the people heading up the effort. They're putting together a few generic ones of their own.
2. Who do I send them to?
These letters should be targeted at the guys who write the checks and have final say on any films. Warner Bros. Entertainment President and C.O.O., Alan Horn and Warner Bros. Pictures President of Production Jeff Robinov.
3. Where do I send them?
Send all letters and emails to either:
Mr. Alan Horn
President and C.O.O. Warner Brothers Entertainment
4000 Warner Blvd.
Burbank, Ca. 91522
Mr. Jeff Robinov
President of Production Warner Brothers
4000 Warner Blvd.
Burbank, Ca. 91522
Now another thing, sending emails are fine, but hand written letters in envelopes, piled on a desk carry greater weight. Emails can be filtered or deleted.
Do BOTH..Email AND post office delivered letters! This is very IMPORTANT!
The other prong of the attack involves getting the word out and getting as many people as possible to send letters.
its going to be up to you to spread the word.
Print out letters for your friends and family to sign.
To anyone who sincerely cares, please take a proactive step. Useless efforts only apply when you don't try.
Trying in itself is an accomplishment.
Indifference accomplishes nothing.
