If I was living in America right now, I would drop everything and dedicate the next 2 years of my life to making a film based on this story (<-- click there, for the uninitiated). Over the past year and a half, 13 Mexican country musicians have been murdered. Assassinated, I'd say. Some of them in some nasty gangland execution style.Three of them in the past 2 1/2 weeks. And no one is quite sure exactly what's going on.
This has got to be one of the most gripping thriller scenarios I've ever heard. And imagine the music that would go with this flick..
In fact, if someone's willing to put out the first, let's say, $9,000, and help out with the project down the line, I'll start research tomorrow, and come back to the States in February, after my musical sizzles the Israeli stage. I have the dual part of the Governor/Inkeeper, and a solo song to boot.
I figure that The Man of LaMancha is a good prep to a project like this, anyway.
Welcome to the New Wanderingstu. More to come on that.
