Can you make that character a man?

 

 

 

 

 

Yes, that was a conversation I had with a literary agent regarding a screen play I wrote. It was a great character. But it was a woman.  And the story had a lot of “chick time” (yes, this a while ago when that kind of phrase was popular).  The representation with the agent didn’t last long.  But I still carry the echo of that question with me when I watch some of the current movies playing now:  Can you make that character a woman?
