(Hopefully not the) Last Remake of Beau Geste

At least I find this time-travel story to be très drôle.

I posted in April that one of my favorite short stories, "Grandpa?" -- already a short film and having just come out as a podcast -- had achieved a multimedia trifecta (that post here).

That recent podcast led directly to a new first for me: my first movie remake. After hearing the podcast, Three Letter Agency (aka, visual effects artist Matthew Lane-Smith) contacted me. TLA has now optioned "Grandpa?" for a new short film.

(If you ended up here because you're a fan of the 1977 feature film, The Last Remake of Beau Geste, it amuses me to think of Marty Feldman [RIP] playing the professor in my story.)

Thanks, Catreona. Now if only Steven Spielberg or James Cameron would take note of my longer fiction :-)
