Thanks Ray. Good to see the McBride/Vidal piece finally see the light of day. Makes me want to dig out my old VHS copy of BOB ROBERTS. Haven't seen it in awhile.
He's written a feature about Theodora and Justinian for Martin Scorsese at Universal. Sting is interested in a film version of Kalki, Empire is in the works as a TNT miniseries and Vidal continues hoping ABC will activate Burr, which almost came together as a mini with Albert Finney not long ago. [None of these projects has come to fruition — yet.]
I would have loved to have seen any of those. I don't think any of them ever came to fruition, although they are doing a remake of CALIGULA now. Hopefully it's better then the first one, which I didn't care for.
