Film Option Double-Feature

I’ve recently inked contracts for a pair of entirely unrelated film options. Another one or two or three may be on the horizon, but let’s stick with the sure things for now.

Disclaimer: James Cameron actually has nothing to do with any of this. But I've got a great James Cameron story!

First, the art-house entry: My short story “Just Outside Our Windows, Deep Inside Our Walls” has been laid claim to by indie filmmaker Derrick Beasley. A dual-year’s-best anthology pick from 2010, it’s the story of the unlikely friendship that develops between two isolated children across the space between their top-floor bedrooms in adjacent houses. I would love to see this come to life.

Next, the multiplex feature: My first crime novel, Wild Horses, has been optioned by Del James. Del has one of the more interesting day jobs in the world: long-time tour manager for Guns N’ Roses. It was an early story of Del’s that was adapted for the video for the epic-length song “November Rain.”

But in Hollywood, Del is represented by Benderspink, a management and production company that currently has around three dozen titles in development. This could get interesting.
