The comment I continually hear from readers of my family book “Dos Gringos” is that it ought to be a film.
“In the middle of the Mexican Revolution, a penniless Norwegian and a drifting Irishman meet in an El Paso bar and are hired by a Pittsburg con-man to fix a gold mine in Mexico with parts which, they discover too late, purposely don’t fit.” I agree it should. Some of what I have heard:
“This is Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid—with accents.”
“Can’t put it down. So much intrigue.”
“A page turner, better than most out of Hollywood.”
“Thrilling – and funny. Crazy guys.”
If anyone has an idea how I can get this responsibly started toward a film, let me know. I have had classes in screen writing and would be open to working on a financed production. Quality is the thing.
Let me know if you have ideas.
