Re: RARA-AVIS: Stephen Hunter

Maybe it just means he had a try at doing a screenplay but it didn't work. Hopefully his books will be adapted at some point -- I think they'd make great movies.

Incidentally, while I don't agree with everything the guy says, Hunter is a wonderful movie critic -- easily my favorite mainstream critic.

And on a related note, I understand the new Bruce Willis movie (opening Feb. 2005, I think) has a screenplay by Robert Crais. I am no Crais fan, but will probably check this out, for curiousity's sake.
