Robert McCammon to Break Career-Long Curse

Since early 2005 Robert R. McCammon's official site has been been keeping enthusiasts of the author's fiction informed about a planned film adaptation from Frontsight Productions of his popular novella "Blue World." Not such staggering news, you mutter? Well, it wouldn't be if we were talking about the announcement of another adaptation of a Stephen King property, but there's something special about the promise of a McCammon work being brought to the screen: it's never happened before.

True, he was one of the maestro's of horror fiction throughout much of the '80s, but his stories, though high ranking in the pantheon of fantastic literature, have managed to elude the silver screen.

Well, maybe good things come in twos, because McCammon's Web site now boasts the news that another much-loved story from the same collection as "Blue World" is slated for a theatrical production. This time it's "Night Calls the Green Falcon" that's up for adaptation by Rainstorm Entertainment. There's no denying that the cinematic potential of both stories is extremely high, so there's a lot to look forward to.--Pete Mesling
