Welcome Zach Schonfeld to the Agency!
Secret History of Vampire's Kiss, the Craziest Nicolas Cage Movie of All Time
Proposal available August 1 and delivery of complete book in 2020.
Narrative non-fiction book about the making of Vampire’s Kiss which overlooked when it was released 30 years ago but which has become a cult classic with millions of youtube hits and it’s popularity is growing day by day. The book is developed from the article Zach wrote for The Ringer: Https://www.theringer.com/movies/2019/6/13/18663380/nicolas-cage-vampires-kiss-breakout-performance-30-years
Thirty years ago, it was a flop. Now it’s clearly the blueprint for Cage’s career of wild and absurd performances. From dead bodies to mechanical bats, this is the inside story of a bizarre cult classic.
