Word from my old college buddy Ira Shiflet is that the Stephen F. Austin Summer Feature program is going to be producing a film based on a Joe R. Lansdale short story.
Since I’m a Lansdale comic fan from my younger days it’s pretty exciting for me to hear of him teaming up with my alma mater film program.
The film is called Christmas with the Dead. Slated to shoot summer 2011. I’m sure it will be full of Lansdale’s inspired brand of macabre humor. And probably full of blood/guts too.
Best of luck to director Brian James Fitzpatrick and all the cast and crew. Hope you guys learn a lot and make something really special.
