18. Isn't there a new movie coming out based on "Mother Night"?

Yes! It's true! It is distributed by Fine Line Features, and is
scheduled to open on November 8th, 1996. "Mother Night" is directed
by Keith Gordon, and the screenplay is by Robert Weide, who posts to
the newsgroup from time to time. The main cast is as follows:

        Nick Nolte          ....    Howard Campbell
        Sheryl Lee          ....    Helga Noth
        John Goodman        ....    Wirtanen
        Alan Arkin          ....    Kraft
        David Straitharn    ....    O'Hare 
        Kirsten Dunst       ....    young Resi Noth

You can read about it at the Fine Line Features web page, which has
a plot summary and a picture. <http://www.flf.com/scr2scn/mother.htm>

Bob Weide is now working on a documentary on Kurt Vonnegut which he
hopes will be on PBS in a year or so and needs funds, and is also adapting
"The Sirens of Titan" for the screen as well, at the request of Vonnegut.
I for one can't wait for the new movie, and hope that these other
projects also proceed unfettered.
