Friend of Pop Culture Zoo, Dan Foster has had a story in his latest short story collection turned into a film and also set for a comic book adaptation. Draft Distro: Tales of the Past, Present, and Future is available now for the Kindle. Of the 17 tales contained therein, “Something’s Going Around” has been turned into the film Lovesick by Tacoma-based filmmaker Pat Lavigne. The film stars Desiree Bajevich, Patrick D. Green, Michael Agostini, Thomas Brophy, Foster, and Sherie Suter from a screenplay by Lavigne and is described as thusly:
“Dina wants nothing more than a meaningful relationship but avoids them at all cost for fear she is cursed. Her safe existence is shattered when a familiar stranger walks back into her life.”
Lovesick is currently being shopped to festivals and other interested parties.
Additionally, Portland-based Crazed Pixel is currently producing a comic book adaption of “Something’s Going Around” with the co-operation of Foster. The first issue is on track for a possible November release.
Pop Culture Zoo whole-heartedly supports this perfect storm of Pacific Northwest productions, from print to film to comic book, and will bring you more as things move forward on all three fronts!
