No stranger to 60's Beach TV....
...or the CB Trucker genre of the 70's....
...Sally Field has committed to a turn in "10-4 Rubber Duck."
"We still have a couple of issues to work through," producer/writer/actor/director/editor/promo-man Piskian breathlessly commented while inflating his raft before launching into the brisk waters off the Cornish Coast. "We never asked Ms. Field to work on this project. In fact, she announced her participation before we ever spoke. Actually, we've never spoken. At this point, I'm not even sure she speaks proper English."
Indeed, a quick perusal of Sally's work indicates that while she's quite conversant in both the "beach" and "trucker" idioms of American English, unrolling her lines in the King's Tongue may be a challenge.
"We're going for a classy feel to this picture," Piskian stated in his clipped British accent. "Throw too many Californians into the porridge mix, and the next thing you know it's, "Hey man! How 'bout cheeseburgers, fries and a coke down at the drive-in?"
We contacted Ms. Field, and were reminded of her spunky, never-say-die persona. "Screw Piskian and his so-called mates!" she roared. "Dammit, I'm doing this picture, even if I have to drive my hybrid sedan back and forth in the background as they film out on the highway, then sue the bastards for screen credit and union scale wages afterwards!"
"Sally's great," Burt Reynolds commented after hearing about the latest dust-up involving the 10-4 Rubber Duck project. "But my advice to this Piskian fellow is to give her whatever she wants. You DO NOT want to piss this chick off!"
