According to Variety and the Cannes Film Festival website Changeling
will be one of twenty films shown in competition at the 61st Cannes
Film Festival.


Cannes Film Festival Press Kit 2008

Have you recovered from signing thousands upon thousands of volume 15
covers in the bunker?

Will you still be able to appear at Emerald City ComiCon in Seattle,
Washington the weekend of May 10-11, 2008?

Will you be attending Festival de Cannes (AKA the Cannes Film
Festival) which runs from May 14-25, 2008?

If you have not already booked your flight, British Airways has a
direct flight from Seattle, Washington to Marseille, France on May 13,
2008 just in time for the opening ceremony. According to a B5 fan in
Europe you can take business class on Rail Europe for about $65 USD.

I know I've been absent here for a long time, but it's been necessary
to getting out from under a number of deadlines and personal stuff
that's been going on which basically put me into (or undre) the bunker
to focus on getting things done.  There was a two week period where I
didn't leave the house other than to get mail.  At all.

But with so much going on at the moment, I felt obliged to come in and
put out some information, with the note that there will be more to
come in the next week or so.

To the question of Emerald City Con, yes, I will still be attending,
though I don't yet know the schedule.  I imagine they'll mainly have
me doing stuff on Saturday just because that's the main day for the
con, but that's conjecture on my part.

Yes, I will be attending the Cannes Film Festival with Changeling
along with the rest of those involved in making it.  The announcement
was just flat-out stunning.

On the work side, in the post-strike environment, I've 1) sold two
original screenplays, 2) was hired to rewrite/basically write a new
script for a project for the Wachowskis, 3) have just finished a deal
to work on a project with Wolfgang Peterson, 4) have another spec
script going to auction around the end of May, 5) just closed the deal
on another assignment which is based on a very influential series of
SF books, 6) have one more deal to write a remake of a nearly
legendary SF movie that will close in a few days, 7) there's a deal on
the table for both Dream Police and Rising Stars which I'm considering
right now...all this in addition to writing The Twelve and Thor (which
remains in the top 5 of best-selling comics) and getting the script
books out the door.

Which explains why nobody's heard a peep from me in ages.

Now I need to take a nap.
