|Since everyone is waiting for the "next" Civil War film to be made...I'd like to suggest that it might be "Stealing the General" from Russell Bonds recent history of the Andrews Raid. I had some email late last year with Mr Bonds and he told me that an option had been taken out on his work. For those of you who dont know how the process works in making a film, if someone wishes to begin a film project from an existing story or book, you option the work meaning you pay the publisher and author a price for an amount to time to get a screenplay written. Sometimes that can involve the author himself but not always. Once a screenplay, or at minimum a treatment (expanded outline), is done, then its time to interest the actors, directors and investors to move forward. Keep your ears open.
