Flipburn pitched movies for such stars as the wrestler turned actor.
“I did a lot of great things with ‘The Rock’ in my life,” said the producer from his bed in HOSPICE surrounded by his family, “I made him an inspirational sports coach, a mean bachelor who becomes a softy when he has to bring up the daughter he never knew he had, a video game turned hopeful but DOA franchise, indie film actor, a tooth fairy who learns to less of an abusive boyfriend/step father.”
“But there was always more I could’ve done,” the dying mogul continue while holding his wife’s hand, “He could’ve done a a rehab movie. He had a ’28 Days’ in him. I will always regret it. But with marriage and kids, there never seems to be enough time. Such is life.”
And then with his family looking on he uttered his dying words, “I will always regret not getting him a romcom.”
Mr. Flipburn is survived by his annoyed wife and three disappointed children.
