Letting Thee Play the Scribe

Whilst out in the trenches we came across the a rather ambitious chap calling himself gollum42 whose summer goal is "writing a feature length screenplay adaptation of The Curse of the Blue Figurine, by John Bellairs."

We wish him well and hope we hear – or see - some of his endeavors. This may, naturally, bring up questions regarding films of John's books and all we can say for now is that something might surface someday but at the moment we're out of the loop of any such news.

My senior project was an attempt to learn the ins and outs of screenwriting - I chose to adapt The House With a Clock in it's Walls - I made it halfway through the book ^_^ Got an A on the project but ever since the thought of really making a movie out of Bellairs exceptional work has been burning in the back of my mind. Any suggestions or thoughts about making a movie? I think that it is about time for a movie with The Barnavelt's is way past due.

GARN! This is so cool, you are talking about me! Oh the powers of the internet! Hi! Yes, I finished the first draft of the screenplay...It came to 131 pages which seems alright, perhaps a bit long, uh, anyway, I'll keep you guys updated!
Oh this is so cool!
