In The Can is the new book from the award-winning British comedy writer Simon Dunn.
Inspired in part by the productions of Heaven’s Gate and The Island Of Dr Moreau, as well as by the Hollywood financial scandals of the late 70s, In The Can follows the troubled process of filming a labour of love.
When the director Helms gets the opportunity to make the movie of his dreams, and step out from his Father’s long shadow, he snaps it up. But what he doesn’t know is that Debra Spencer, the studio boss, has commissioned it for her own dastardly needs.
Can he wrangle his over-inflated Hollywood star, a fresh-faced co-star, a legendary movie icon, and deal with a hedonistic movie-mogul, a money-grabbing tyrant, a pregnant mob boss, and an army of latex pig men?
And will he get it in the can before it all hits the fan?
Simon regularly blogs on www.simondunn.met.uk about classic and lost comedy, as well as offering advice to writers and comedians.
