De Luca hosts ‘Dialogue’

Filmmaker makes move to small screen

Producer and film exec Michael De Luca has made a move in front of the camera, hosting new interview series “The Dialogue: Learning From the Masters.”

The 27-part project features conversations with film scribes including Paul Haggis, Robin Swicord, the Farrelly brothers, Ted Griffin, Scott Rosenberg, Jeff Nathanson, Nia Vardalos, Stuart Beattie and Sheldon Turner.

Writer-entrepreneur Aleks Horvat created “Dialogue” and produced it with his partner, personal manager Larry Shuman. Series was shot on location at the Office, a Santa Monica workspace for screenwriters owned by Horvat.

De Luca said the show will give viewers a “rare opportunity” to hear stories from working scribes. Series “gives the audience a lot of info about the business and the politics behind it,” he said.

Topics covered include writer tips, character development, story structure, pitching, treatments, story beats, inspiration and writer’s block. In addition, each scribe shows off a scene from one of his produced pics.

First six segments of “The Dialogue” will be available on DVD this month at Web site Thedialogueseries.com. There are currently no plans for a TV airing.

De Luca’s next production to hit the bigscreen will be the Nicolas Cage starrer “Ghost Rider” from Columbia.
