Alex Cox's Searchers 2.0 film project

Found Alex "Repo Man, Sid & Nancy" Cox's website last night. Here's what he has to say about a new film project called Searchers 2.0:

" The virtue of the microfeature is that it costs very little and is intended to be viewed primarily on TV and on DVD. If it plays in the cinema, that's cool too. But films don't make money in the cinema: they lose money there, thanks to the print, publicity and marketing costs, and the producer ends up in debt to the theatrical distributor.

SEARCHERS 2.0 is at the point that REPO MAN was in 1983 - just before we made the deal with Universal. It could be made as a low budget feature by a studio (or by one of the studios' London subsidiaries). Or it can be made as a free-standing, independent feature, by a limited company set up for that purpose. "
