In a recent post, I listed a few upcoming movies which I am tracking/looking forward to.
One of these is the movie version of the novel Satori, which was written by Don Winslow, based on the novel Shibumi by Trevanian.
I just spotted in the Trevanian Facebook page, that there was an announcement on 3rd June 2013 that:
incident at 20-mile movie deal signed. Small independent. We shall see what we shall see.
So there is another possible movie to add to the watch list.
BTW: I notice that Alexandra Whitaker’s website is not available at the moment. I hope that will be rectified soon.
The BBC reports that a new Sherlock Holmes story penned by none other than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has been uncovered, “more than a hundred years after it was first published”.
As a huge fan of these stories I must confess to being very excited when I read this.
I read all of the books in my youth, and I listened to all of the stories again quite recently.
I am also a fan of the two movies with Robert Downey Junior (there is speculation on IMDB that a third movie is on the way). And more recently I have very much enjoyed the TV series with Benedict Cumberbatch (huge fan of his also).
And I mentioned in my previous blog how much I liked the TV series “House M.D.” which was based to some extent on the Holmes concept.
To return to the newly discovered story:
- The story itself is available to read here
- This article casts doubt on whether or not it was really written by Doyle
