If you help raise the money, I'll help make the movies.

As a point of interest, there are several scripts running around
Hollywood on Marlowe's life; I wrote one of them.

Just in case anyone missed them, both Middleton's The Revenger's Tragedy
and Webster's Duchess of Malfi have had recent film adaptations. For the
Webster play, the film is entitled Hotel. I have not seen it, and so
would be interested in the impressions of those who have.
