Wow, good for everyone. Particularly Chizmar, whom I hadn't realized was interesting in film-writing (though given how much of a CEMETERY DANCE is given to "media" coverage, I probably should've).

I'm looking forward to seeing Ed and Paris Hilton at the Oscar ceremonies.

Ed Gorman said...

Thanks, Bill.

And I just got this from Lee Goldberg:

Congratulations!!! That is fantastic news. Coincidentally, my movie FAST TRACK: NO LIMITS starts shooting Wednesday, too. You and I should make sure that we sit together at the Oscars next year.

I wrote and am producing FAST TRACK, which is shooting in Berlin. The cast is made up of newcomers from the U.S., U.K, France, Canada and Germany...Erin Cahill, Andrew Walker, Alexia Barlier, Joseph Beattie, Pasquale Aleardi, and Maurice Roeve are among the actors. The director is Axel Sand.

So you, Lee, and P.H. at the Oscars. I really can't wait.

I don't know how Lee passed up Denise ("nukular scientist") Richards, but otherwise they sound like two movies to watch out for.
