There’s some news I’ve been waiting to share with you all, and now I can! For a while, the Hollywood moguls have been stringing Stephen Harding along on whether or not his book, “The Last Battle” would become a major motion picture. They finally got their ducks in a row, and the movie will be made by two MAJOR studios, The Picture Company in Hollywood, and Studio Canal of France! These partners have produced blockbusters over the years. Do some research on Google, their body of work is too much for this note, but suffice it to say Steve’s work is in good hands. The news of this movie to come has been circulated in the trades in the US and internationally. In addition, sales of “The Last Battle” are once again on the rise in the US and Germany. It remains to be seen who will direct and who will star in the film, but these studios have worked with guys like Liam Neeson, so talent of high caliber. They are already scouting locations for filming and within the next 2-3 years, we can expect a release.
What could this mean for the future of his next book out, The Castaway's War, featuring the story of Lt. Hugh Barr Miller, Jr. and the crew of the USS Strong DD 467? Lots of speculation by Steve and myself, but we'll just have to see if there is any domino effect. For right now, let's all congratulate Steve on the success of his book, and the future success of this wonderful movie! See the link below for the official release!!!
There's more, so much more to share - but not yet. Until Steve gives me the go-ahead, I have to keep some things under my hat! Believe me though, when I say the wait will be worth it!!!
