Abstract:

Jane and Don stumbled upon a script for a film written by a geeky filmmaker-wannabe named Quentin Tarantino; it was called Natural Born Killers, and they liked it so much they optioned it for the bargain price of $10,000. But, suddenly, after Reservoir Dogs turned Tarantino into an overnight sensation, he and every major studio in town decided they wanted control of the script, pitting Jane and Don up against some of the meanest, toughest players in Hollywood.

From the script meetings to the movie set to the marketing and distribution process, Killer Instinct takes you behind the scenes and provides an insider's look at the "New Hollywood"--Told by one who learned how to survive it the hard way. It exposes how deals are really struck and stars are picked, and how the balance of power in Hollywood now favors the Quentin Tarantinos of the world who can add the "indie" cachet to big-budget monsters. Fresh, witty, and irreverent, Killer Instinct provides an unprecedented look inside this wild and irresistible industry.
