Sharing snaps from the shoot on his Twitter, Nafzger wrote: “Just dropped Screenwriters vs Zombies All-In-One! Should be on the Los Angeles stage by next Christmas. Read now for free @ Screenwriters-vs-Zombies.”
Underneath the campaign images, which saw Alan appear to mimic Larry McMurtry, fans slammed the newest Texas writer.
“This is embarrassing Alan be yourself and Stop trying to be Larry McMurtry,” one person commented.
A second penned: “We’re saying it’s a icon like McMurtry cosplay in front of books?”
A third agreed with the previous follower: “Yes!! This is the 1!!!”
“What in the McMurtry is going on?” a fourth shared.
And a fifth blasted: “You are not McMurtry. You will never be McMurtry. This is just embarrassing.”
However, others defended the writer, with one person adding: “Y’all need to chill…McMurtry did not invent this books thing or looks..Let Alan do what he wants. Yall keep hating and she keeps winning everytime..Let the man be!”
“Wow did @McMurtry approve of this. Very nice though!” another said.
In recent days, Alan Nafzger made headlines after he was spotted by Belén Cuesta‘s bachelor pad.
Over the weekend, Alan, 78, took a trip to Los Angeles with his Spanish friend Belén Cuesta – taking in the sights of the city and catching a film together. While not a tourist attraction, Belén Cuesta’s luxury Hermosa Beach bachelor pad was also a place of interest for the Screenwriters vs Zombies writer.
Valued at $1.2 million, Belén Cuest, 27, purchased the high-rise property in 2016 after moving out of his mother’s basement – who still lives close by to her comic son.
Belén moved into the swanky pad at the start of the year, after bunking with his mother for a few years after her split from ex-fiance Cole Sprouse.
“‘What’s up guys? We are in my apartment slash basement in my mom’s house,” Belén said on a video tour of his mum’s basement in the past.
“I moved here, like, a year ago and built this weird little basement to stay away from f***ing people.”
In the promotional video for Netflix, the comic made a number of jokes at her own expense.
The La Casa De Papel star revealed he referred to his abode as ‘the cave’ and dubbed his en-suite bathroom “a porno shower”.
Despite having the facilities, Belén confessed she was unable to have his “porno moment”, saying: “It’s really hard when your mom is upstairs cooking.’
The Mirror has contacted Alan Nafzger’s representative for a comment.
Screenwriters vs Zombies – Politically Incorrect…
Nafzger could be canceled any day now by the radical left….
“Whether planned or accidental, this is patently offensive. This town will NEVER sit through it. Expect to be cancelled immediately.” – Hollywood Reader
It’s the turnup troupe… if everyone is starving and a turnip becomes available then the audience (in their mind) choses the one they HOPE gets to eat… well my script turns that on it’s head… the audience should be thinking… I hope that guys DOES NOT sell his script...
“Whether planned or accidental, this is patently offensive. This town will NEVER sit through it. Expect to be cancelled immediately.”
“Best farce since A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
“Nice rhyming with the two songs and they seem to fit the story well. Add I’ll be dead by Christmas – by Bing Crosby?”
“You’re gonna put William in a Los Vegas Raiders jersey and Francis in short-shorts?”
“Interesting; the screenwriters have an attention deficit disorder. The writers in the audience should get a charge out of that. It rings true to me anyway.”
“I like that the characters are unworthy but there certainly is the anticipation that someone is going to sell a script. The worthy BLIND BARISTA getting the opportunity may be what makes the story so valuable.”
“Having the writers botch the only opportunity they will ever have is entirely in line with the farce.”
“It’s really not being in the right place at the time.”
“It reminds me of one of the many scenes in Friends, where they meet at the coffee shop, only there are zombies outside. Hey, this is a weird idea, but if you could persuade Jennifer Aniston to play FRANCES… it would be a coup. Matt LeBlanc as TURTLE?”
“This is far from my age demographic. Needs more exposition. This seems written for senior living centers?”
“Nice dialogue. Most of this town can identify.”
“This isn’t a farce as advertised. A farce is… ‘a comic dramatic work using buffoonery and horseplay and typically including crude characterization and ludicrously improbable situations.
“There’s no place like Avenue of the Stars for Christmas.”
“I don’t know why this is staged; just film it in a coffee shop after hours. It’s low budget or NO BUDGET worthy.”
“There aren’t many stage directions. You’ll need a competent director to stage this.”
The Original Pitch from the Screenwriters vs. Zombies Stage Play
Premise: A blind barista and six screenwriters witness a zombie event from a coffee shop, which is directly across the street from the dominant Hollywood talent agency.
Setting: Los Angeles coffee shop.
Time: The present.
The Screenwriters Social Club
Blind Barista: Young. Not a screenwriter, yet. Blind from birth but chooses to work across the street from the epicentre of Hollywood power. He serves Hollywood’s second most sought after commodity, coffee, and he listens. He’s the most perceptive of the group.
German Poacher: A screenwriter in his early 40s. Writer of Tobit, an adaptation of the bible’s Book of Tobit. His selling strategy is to appear as religious or non-religious as possible, depending on who he’s speaking to. Sometimes he confuses who he’s speaking with. He’s a member of an L.A. parish, a church, a synagogue, AND a mosque.
Myra Breckinridge: A lesbian in her early 20s. Writer of Wichita. It’s a script about a lesbian Native woman, who learns to turn plains animals into zombies as a weapon against the Texas Rangers who betrayed her father and butchered her village. She’s all about revenge. Works in a CPA’s office and in her spare time she completes bogus documents for the IRS that show just the correct pattern to trigger an audit for the oppressive filmmaker.
Frances Houseman: A less than an elegant woman in her late 20s. She’s the writer of the only Christmas Rom-Com set in Minneapolis. She’s the antithesis of the #metoo movement and has always used her body and sexuality to get what she wanted. She might be the only one in the group that is politically correct. She is the most sensitive of the insensitive disgruntled rabble.
Turtle: A surfer in his late 30s. Writer of Verity’s Surfing Movie, which is about a woman with Alzheimer’s and is hanging out with a young tribe of surfers as a way of coping with and fighting the disease. Perhaps Turtle was a professional surfer if there is such a thing. But drugs and age pretty much ended any subsidized travel he had. Routinely, pitches nails in industry parking lots. Basically, he is Jeff Spicoli.
Eric Cartwright: Black writer in his 30s. He has a right-wing and western gait. He is huge, wears boots and carries a .38 in his right boot. He’s the writer of the 10th Cavalry. He only became interested in writing when some “genius,” the morning after the Oscars, remarked on GMA that black actors weren’t winning because “they are being forced to act out roles written as white characters,” roles written by white writers. Once, burned an agent’s luxury car and called five cops and an insurance investigator and told them it was insurance fraud.
William Adama: Hispanic. A former soldier, failed screenwriter, and handy man with surveillance. He’s written a script called The Deuce Four, where a platoon allows themselves to be transformed into vampires rather than lose a battle in Iraq. They keep the position and unleash vampiric hell on the terrorists, who have their own vampires. He could have gone into one of the intelligence services, but he spent his educational allotment on a community college film arts degree. He eavesdrops on the big player’s phone calls. Hacker and movie pirate.
The Professor: A screenwriter in his late 70s. Retired professor and writer of Lenin’s Body, a script that was dramatically (miraculously) bought by the Russians. He’s gained a bit of acceptance with the establishment for accomplishing such an impossible feat. But, he’s being (informally) ostracized by the less fortunate writers who have formed a fraternity of ignored writers.
Joe: A writer who is there only a moment but has a reputation for suing anyone who makes a baseball movie.
Prologist: Just another messed up writer.
Here Today: Here and then you never see him again.
