A few days ago Pirooz Kalayeh visited me about making The Human War into a movie. Here is his post on it.
Pirooz was really nice the whole time he was here. We drove around and ate at Denny's.
I really like the idea of The Human War being made into a movie. It might not be, but I hope it will be.
I don't know if it will be great as Citizen Kane, but I think it would be funny little film people could watch and enjoy for an hour and a half.
I don't care if the movie isn't like the book. As long as 60 percent of the book remains I will be satisfied. I understand that movies are a different medium and require different things.
They asked me to be on set and give advice at times. Which I think is nice of them. I don't think I will add much advice. I understand that they are the professionals and this is what they do. None of them advised me on writing the book, so I don't think I should advise them on making the movie.
But I understand that is part of the movie making process, giving advice.
