(4) Wed Jun 13 2007 22:36: John le Carré should write a novelization of Spy vs. Spy.
there's a screenplay floating around for a spy vs spy movie, and obviously i read a good chunk of it. the best part is when someone calls someone else a "murky jerkloaf". actually, i can only assume that was the best part, as that's the only part i can remember. actually, maybe this was a dream.

Yeah! I it should actually be a Philip Jose Farmer-esque serious pulp fiction take on the Spy vs. Spy formula. It would be like good vs. evil James Bond, and the two spies would both be trying to kill each other for the whole movie, repeatedly escaping (or alternatively, getting non-fatally maimed by) each others' booby traps while trying to accomplish some task for their bosses. Then at the end of the movie, you get to see who wins!

Hollywood.com says a SvS adaptation is in the works, a story about "spies who no longer have a job now that the Cold War is over." Hey, that was my spy screenplay idea.

so like, when the one spy dies, he gets replaced for the next sequel but the other guy comes back.
