Question Dear Alessandro
Could you answer me a question or find out. I was a friend of Richard Condon (Prizzi Books and much more)and I am in several books of Richard with my full personal Name: Ueli Münger - The Movie Prizzi's Honor was very successfully. Why no continuation? Like Prizzi's Family - in one of those books I am a Police Chief in Chicago - Richard always promised me, that I can play that role, if the film is going to be made. Unfortunately Richard Condon passed away....., but I always ask myself, why are those movies not made...??
Thank you so much and best regards from Switzerland.
Answer Congratulations on being mentioned in a well known book series. I can't give you an exact answer but do consider this. It took Hollywood a really really really long time to make the Film "Unbroken" about the amazing life of Louis Zamperini. The movie may never have been made at all if the director, Angelina Jolie, didn't live so close to Mr. Zamperini that she could see his house from hers!
The movie Schindler's List was delayed something like 10 years. The sad part about these delays is the people that the movies are about are old and getting older. One would think that would cause Hollywood to step on it and make the movie, yet it almost seems as if the older the person gets that a movie is about, the longer the film gets delayed.
