Two movies!

Right now it knocks me over to write that two Small Beer books are being filmed: the title story of Ted Chiang’s Story of Your Life and Others and Kelley Eskridge’s Solitaire.

Story of Your Life is being filmed in Montreal, Canada, with Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and Forest Whitaker, and Solitaire is being filmed as OtherLife in Perth, Australia, with Jessica De Gouw, Thomas Cocquerel, and TJ Power.

There are always books and stories being optioned (recent film interest has centered on two novels: Ayize Jama-Everett’s forthcoming The Entropy of Bones and Carol Emshwiller’s Philip K. Dick award winner The Mount) and some of it pans out and much of it doesn’t so it’s a total thrill that these two stories are actually on their way to the silver screen. Many things will happen between then and now but I’m just going to take this moment to celebrate. Whoopee!!
