It’s Scripted!

Director: (slamming down a newspaper) Ugh! We’re short by only 12 millionโ€ฆ (with more emphasis) just 12 million to be the highest-grossing film of all time.

Marketing Executive: (calmly) Yes, I understand. And, naturally, I’ve got a simple idea to boost ticket sales.

Director: (in an excited voice) Why didn’t you tell me so, what is it?

Marketing Executive: Well, we simply re-release the film, complete with deleted scenes, teasers and other specials.

*** The Next Day ***

Every newspaper headline reads “Avengers: Endgame to be Re-released.”

The photo prompt has been given by Ted Strutz at the Friday Fictioneers hosted Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The word prompt (Simple) has been given by Denise Farley at the Girlie on the Edge.
