The WinningScripts.com link to his screenplay TRITON has all sorts of things about the script:
There is also a web site about his screenplay TRITON. Marc's sister-in-law actually did a coming attraction video that was very clever. This link is:
"I read the first three books of Tarzan and really loved them, plus Philip Jose Farmer's "bio" on Tarzan. We used to have Tarzan Theater which showed old Tarzan movies on WSB-TV back in the 1960s on Saturday afternoons, and I enjoyed them, particularly the Sy Weintraub productions. I was a huge fan of the 1960s Tarzan TV series with Ron Ely, who was my image of Tarzan as a young man.
Marc explains his interest in Edgar Rice Burroughs and Tarzan
"I went to see the Disney version of Tarzan with my niece. I saw the Caspar van Dien Tarzan to an nearly vacant movie theater. When I saw Greystoke, my friend Signe Hoved told me she had never seen me squirm so much during a movie so it is safe to say that I was very disappointed in that film.
"I did love Legend of Tarzan and saw it numerous times. Alexender Skargard remnded me a lot of Ron Ely, and Margot Robbie rivals Maureen O'Sullivan as the most beautiful and sexiest Jane of the silver screen.
"In addition to Tarzan, I am also a big fan of Doc Savage and Star Trek, plus Cheyenne (Clint Walker) and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. In fact, I did spec (un-produced) scripts on Doc and Star Trek. I enjoy Tom Clancy's novels and the Isaac Bell novels by Clive Cussler.
"FInally, I really like the John Carter movie and thought it was really well done.
