Radio Free Albemuth Production Update
John Alan Simon, the director of the forthcoming cinematic adaptation of Radio Free Albemuth sent this update today:
"The film version of Radio Free Albemuth finished production at the end of October.
We've been in the editing room since about November 15th and have just about arrived at a "cut" of the movie that I'm happy with from a dramatic point of view.
We'll be working on finishing up special effects and music and sound for the next two months or so - then we'll be ready to introduce the movie to both U.S. and international film distributors - hopefully from the showcase point of a great film festival.
After the movie is picked up by a distributor, advertising materials like trailers and newspaper ads will be prepared and then the movie will, we anticipate, be theatrically released first in the U.S. then overseas. Later, after the "theatrical window", the movie will be released on DVD. So at this point RFA is probably six months to a year or more away from DVD availability."
