There's good news from Tinseltown tonight:

Today's 'Variety' ran a very exciting story called 'Screen time for Hard Case'. It details a new partnership between Charles Ardrai and James Polster with the production company Papizan-Hirsch Entertainment to develop feature projects based on the Hard Case crime novels.

The first film which they hope to start shooting later this year will be 'Little Girl Lost' by Mr. Ardrai himself.

Papizan-Hirsch is very much a quality production house. They are co- producers of HBO's meticulously produced 'Rome' among other projects.

This is a huge deal and one that will, I hope, be artistically and financially successful for all parties concerned.

This could be the greatest boost for our genre since . . . well, since Hard Case Crime itself started three years ago.
