    What if William Shakespeare had written The Big Lebowski? The Dude has met the Bard, and he doth abide. Join the “Knave” and Sir Walter on a wild tale of mistaken identity, kidnapping, bowling, and a rug that, in faith, really tied the room together—in a sidesplitting Shakespearean comedy of errors and ninepins, told in five glorious acts of iambic pentameter and impeccable period prose. It’s already a theatrical hit and a worldwide viral phenomenon. Two Gentlemen of Lebowski is not endorsed by or associated with the Coen Brothers, the writers and directors of the film The Big Lebowski, or Working Title or Universal Pictures, the producer and distributor of The Big Lebowski. Any and all adaptation rights in and to the The Big Lebowski are reserved to the Coen Brothers and to Universal Pictures.

    In the summer of 1970, legendary but self-destructive director Orson Welles returned to Hollywood from years of self-imposed exile in Europe and decided it was time to make a comeback movie. It was about a legendary self-destructive director who returns to Hollywood from years of self-imposed exile in Europe. Welles swore it wasn’t autobiographical. The Other Side of the Wind was supposed to take place during a single day, and Welles planned to shoot it in eight weeks. It took twelve years and remains unreleased and largely unseen. Orson Welles’s Last Movie by Josh Karp is a fast-paced, behind-the-scenes account of the bizarre, hilarious, and remarkable making of what has been called “the greatest home movie that no one has ever seen.” Funded by the shah of Iran’s brother-in-law and based on a script that Welles rewrote every night for years, it was a final attempt to one-up his own best work. It’s almost impossible to tell if art is imitating life or vice versa in the film. It’s a production best encompassed by its star, John Huston, who described the making of the film as “an adventure shared by desperate men that finally came to nothing.”

    Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, creators of HBO’s classic sketch comedy show Mr. Show, present to you this collection of never-before-seen scripts and ideas that Hollywood couldn’t find the gumption to green-light. Since Mr. Show closed up shop, Bob and David have kept busy with many projects—acting in fun, successful, movies and television shows; directing things; and complaining about stuff that didn’t turn out well to anyone who would listen, and even alone, in silence, inside their own heads. Chock-full of comic twists, turns, and maybe a few hard truths, Hollywood Said No! reveals the full-length, never-before-seen scripts for Bob and David Make a Movie and Hooray For America!, a satirical power-house indictment of all that you hold dear. This tome also includes a bonus section of orphaned sketch ideas from the Mr. Show days and beyond, suitable for performance by church groups that aren’t all koo-koo about religion. Now, for the first time, take a peek at the scripts that didn’t get the go-ahead and ponder a world we can only dream about.

    The creative geniuses behind HBO’s classic sketch comedy Mr. Show are back with a collection of hilarious, never-before-seen scripts that may just have been too good for Hollywood. It’s hard to write a film. It’s even harder to get that film made. So over the years, when Hollywood has said “No!” to actor-writer-comedians Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, the two have simply moved on to other projects and continued living their lives. But what if those scripts were actually hilarious? What if they deserved to see the light of day? What if Hollywood was just plain wrong? Hollywood Said No! includes the full-length, never-before-seen scripts for Bob and David Make a Movie and Hooray for America! They are all presented in a more readable manner than standard film scripts, and Bob and David Make a Movie has been fleshed out with brand-new storyboards by acclaimed artist Mike Mitchell, all drawn exclusively for this book. And because Bob and David love you, the book even includes a bonus section of orphaned sketch ideas from the Mr. Show days, suitable for performance by church groups that aren’t all “koo-koo” about religion. Wait, there’s still more! The book will also include a section of “constructive” notes written by a “studio executive.” And last but not least (well, possibly least), Bob and David (and Brian Posehn) will provide a section of reminiscences to add context and backstory on what went right and what went wrong. Will you shout “Yes!” where Hollywood screamed “No!”? It doesn’t matter; nobody can hear you.

    He spent his earliest years in post WWII–refugee camps. He came to America and grew up in Cleveland—stealing cars, rolling drunks, battling priests, nearly going to jail. He became the screenwriter of the worldwide hits Basic Instinct, Jagged Edge, and Flashdance. He also wrote the legendary disasters Showgirls and Jade. The rebellion never ended, even as his films went on to gross more than a billion dollars at the box office and he became the most famous—or infamous—screenwriter in Hollywood. Joe Eszterhas is a complex and paradoxical figure: part outlaw and outsider combined with equal parts romantic and moralist. More than one person has called him “the devil.” He has been referred to as “the most reviled man in America.” But Time asked, “If Shakespeare were alive today, would his name be Joe Eszterhas?” and he was the first screenwriter picked as one of the movie industry’s 100 Most Powerful People. Although he is often accused of sexism and misogyny, his wife is his best friend and equal partner. Considered an apostle of sex and violence, he is a churchgoer who believes in the power of prayer. For many years the ultimate symbol of Hollywood excess, he has moved his family to Ohio and immersed himself in the midwestern lifestyle he so values. Controversial, fearless, extremely talented, and totally unpredictable, the author of the bestselling American Rhapsody and National Book Award nominee Charlie Simpson’s Apocalypse has surprised us yet again: he has written a memoir like no other. On one level, Hollywood Animal is a shocking and often devastating look inside the movie business. It intimately explores the concept of fame and gives us a never-before-seen look at the famous. Eszterhas reveals the fights, the deals, the extortions, the backstabbing, and the sex, drugs, and rock’n’roll world that is Hollywood. But there are many more levels to this extraordinary work. It is the story of a street kid who survives a life filled with obstacles and pain…A chronicle of a love affair that is sensual, glorious, and unending…An excruciatingly detailed look at a man facing down the greatest enemy he’s ever fought: the cancer inside him…And perhaps most important, Hollywood Animal is the heartbreaking story of a father and son that defines the concepts of love and betrayal. This is a book that will shock you and make you laugh, anger you and move you to tears. It is pure Joe Eszterhas—a raw, spine-chilling celebration of the human spirit.
