"See? My last smoke - It's bad for the baby..."

Evenin' people,

OK, it's not P&R related, nor even Max Payne related, but I thought I'd share this news with you guys, anyway...

As of 05/08/08 (i.e., yesterday), I became the proud father of a beautiful 7lb 6oz baby daughter! We haven't named her yet, as we're hoping one will just pop into our minds during some sort of moment of revelation. But being that her current favourite pastimes include punching me and her mommy in the face, and competing with the audible range of Krakatoa, I'm sure whatever name we settle on will suit her perfectly.

Anyway, I haven't slept much over these past 48 hours, which, OK, is no new feat for me (and sure ain't gonna get any better now!), but I think I'll bid you guys adieu, and pop a pizza in the oven.

Fergle "Larry David" Gibson,
Writer, Director, and Proud Father.

P.S. Yes, P&R is still going ahead. :-)

P.P.S. Received a few e-mails from people congratulating me on quitting smoking for my baby daughter, but I don't *actually* smoke - The title of this post is a quote from the first Max Payne videogame. Apologies for the confusion!

A new beginning... 
Thursday, June 12, 2008, 08:33 PM
Since Luke's "Fuck FOX" post, there have been a few changes around here. You might have noticed that the poster no longer reads "Max Payne", nor the banner at the top of the blog, and Nigel Billing, although still the lead character, is no longer down as "Max Payne" on the cast list.

So what does all of this mean? It must seem like everything we've worked so hard to uphold over the years is now crumbling down around our feet... but that couldn't be farther from the truth.

Since June 1st, we officially divorced ourselves from the Max Payne franchise. I.e., we are no longer a "Max Payne" production. This decision was made because ONE, I have no desire to get on the bad side of a multi-billion dollar corporation that will most likely have me assassinated if I go against them, and TWO, I don't quit... EVER. Plus, didn't I promise you guys a film at some point?

Which brings me to my next bit of news...

We are going to RE-MAKE Payne & Redemption. When I say "re-make", I don't mean re-edit what we have and put it out there, because we're not allowed to do that, and would most likely end up having our testicles removed and forcefully placed where the sun doesn't shine. I mean we're literally going to re-write and re-film Payne & Redemption, but BIGGER, BETTER and STRONGER than before... and perhaps most importantly, without infringing upon copyright.

Fortunately, Payne & Redemption is an *original* story - It always was... It even has an entire cast of original characters (bar Max Payne himself). So apart from not being able to call the lead character "Max Payne" anymore, not much else needs to be altered from my original concept, other than to make it BETTER, cooler, and worthy of all the shit this production has been through.

A few people have been asking what's going to happen with the trailers and publicity-stills, and yes, they *will* be making a comeback, but without reference to "Max Payne", and will serve as promotional material only, as their content will not feature in the film you finally get to see.

Anyway, guys... I think that's all for now. If anything else comes to mind, I'll be sure to update this post!

As always, stay frosty.

Writer, Director & Executive Producer.
