Larry Blamire, the writer and director of 1950s-style scifi spoof, The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra (2001), has a long-gestating project that sounds too good not to happen eventually.

He’d like to get the appropriate level of funding to be able to put it into production — and from the potential evident in his conceptual drawings, I’d love him to get the funds to do it, too.
