Screened a lovely, dark little number last night -- Nic Cage, in 8MM. Holy shit. What a DARK film. All about some rich dude who hires a porn director to shoot a snuff film. Nic takes a dark on the dark side in the sleazy underbelly of Hollywood, assisted by sex shoppe worker Joaquen Pheonex ... wonderfully perverted in vinyl. DARK SHIT, but good. Not for the faint of heart.
Gotta special treat for you. We'll get back to Wilshire Boulevard tomorrow ... but today, a fresh, new scene from Little Girl Blue. Now -- those of you who have followed the story so far have already met our young wannabe stripper, fresh of the boat from the Midwest, new to LA. Her name was Aerin ... but now it's Blue. Deal with it. That's part of the fun of being a writer. You can play God.
And on the seventh day, Blue hired the services of private eye Carrie Love ...
INT. FANTASY ISLAND STRIP CLUB - NIGHT
Blue sits at far end of the bar with Carrie.
They sip bottles of beer.
I’m so embarrassed.
Don’t be. You were great.
But I fucking FELL.
Adds to your charm.
They’re gonna offer you a job.
Just you wait.
So -- you’re a private detective.
I am. But keep it under your hat.
I come here to do a Garbo.
(pulls out her card)
Here. Just in case --
(takes it, reads)
‘Fast, Cheap & Out of Control?’
(takes a swig)
And it gives Joe Average a hard-on.
How much do you charge?
Are you in some kind of trouble?
It’s -- about my sister.
Is she in trouble?
She -- died.
Blue looks around.
Makes sure no one is listening.
They said she committed suicide.
But that’s not true.
She’d never do that. Never.
Jonna would NEVER do that.
She was a dancer here.
Jonna was trying to make it as an actress,
said this was just temporary,
that the money was great,
the people were nice,
and that she was making some great contacts.
(sips her beer)
She wrote me once a week.
Then the letters stopped.
My parents were contacted by the police,
they said she’d killed herself.
But she DIDN’T. I KNOW she didn’t.
Someone KILLED her.
I’ll do it.
But you said you were too expen --
I am. But I made a bundle on my last case.
Time for me to pay it forward.
You know, karma.
Dirty deeds, done dirt cheap.
