So for those of you who were friends with Craig Brewer at College Park, this may be pretty amazing. Craig's movie "Hustle and Flow" was screened at Sundance on Saturday and went over fabulously. He's sold the film rights to Paramount for 18 million dollars. Paramount is actually starting up a new film subsidiary for this film, in order to make more independent films.
You can read any of the many news stories about this or you can see and read about Craig this week on Entertainment Tonight,
Access Hollywood, Hardball with Chris Matthews, The New York Times, The LA Times,
USA Today, Variety, E!, and People.
I guess that I should have assumed anyone willing to go out on the tennis courts with us at 7AM in the freezing cold was driven enough to accomplish this.
