Minna deals with the demands and expectations of writing the new “Von Bach” film.Doctor Heinrich Von Bach was the nineteenth-century scientist resurrected from the dead by his own ungodly invention. At least that’s the story Hollywood told when they got hold of the gothic romance novel written about the good doctor. For a hundred years they’ve made as many films based on the bloody life and undeath of Von Bach.
Today, a major studio is finishing a big budget “Von Bach” movie. But suddenly, the real Von Bach returns to life in Hollywood and he is going to teach the cast and crew the true meaning of “development hell.”
In chapter 2, “Writer’s Block,” we see Minna dealing with the demands and expectations of writing the new “Von Bach” film and she engineers a radical solution to the studio’s problems.
