* Popcorn (1999 ?)
Joel Schumacher (director of films such as Flatliners, Falling Down and
Batman Forever) has announced plans to direct the movie version of Ben's
novel Popcorn, and apparently will star Jeff Goldblum, Nathan Lane and
Ellen Barkin. Reports conflict each other as to whether it will be adapted
by Ben or not.
* Much Ado About Nothing (1993)
He features in Kenneth Branagh's film version of the Shakespeare play as
Verges, Michael Keaton's sidekick. The film also stars Kenneth Branagh, Emma
Thompson, Denzel Washington, Keanu Reeves and Richard Briers.
The film is available at your local video rental store, and as a boxed set
special edition. If you can't find it, try the British-based Internet Music
