PREMISE: Tobit is an observant Dutch Jew living in Amsterdam. He lives correctly, giving alms and burying the dead. In spite of his good works, Tobit is struck blind. Concurrent with Tobit’s story is that of Sarah, daughter of one of Tobit’s distant relative, whose seven successive husbands are each killed by a demon on their wedding night. When Tobit and Sarah pray to God for deliverance, God sends the angel Raphael to act as intercessor. Tobit regains his sight, and Sarah marries Tobit’s son Tobias. The story closes with Tobit’s thanksgiving and an account of his death. This is actually a Jewish short story possibly dating from Persian times in some Bibles is the book of Tobit, named after the father of its hero.

I liked the new version of the script. The female antagonist, whom the producer did like, remained and so did the scam. But now the younger protagonist and antagonist ended up togethera dark love story embraced the thriller. I sent off the new script with high hopes.
But thats what the producer wanted, and so I started a major rewrite. He also disliked the title. I changed it to Earthly Desires, which he loved.
The first thing the producer wanted to do was to lower the age of the protagonist to 30s or even 20s! Well. By my way of thinking, this would change everything in very major ways. I couldnt imagine a younger protagonist portraying the naive, shy, aging scholar around whom the whole story turned.
Between Heaven and Hell was a thriller about a 50-year-old English professor and William Blake scholar who gets a night with a call girl as a birthday present. He becomes obsessed with her, and she sets him up to take the fall for a scam she is involved in. However, hes a quick learner about the seamier side of life and reverses the tables on her in the end.
