I guess it had to happen, eh? An interesting piece of news came across my Google Email feed today. It seem Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is set to produce and star in a Teddy Bear movie based on the ‘Teddy Bears Protecting the Innocent’ poster that has been knocking around the Internets. We all know the poster, the one of a little brown Teddy Bear protecting his child from a shadowy Monsters, it was drawn by Alex Panagopoulos and came to my attention as A Teddy Bear Tale was being printed.
It is a beautiful piece of art and is very evocative, fitting the themes of my Teddy Bear story very well. That little Teddy Bear could so easily be Tristan as he undertakes the task of protecting his child from the Monsters in the night. And now New Line, with the Rock at the helm are looking to turn it into a motion picture. Now I just need to find away to get my book under their noses!!! So I have an idea… I am calling on all you Tristan Fans to Tweet the Rock @TheRock the link to A Teddy Bear Tale… Together we might be able to do something really cool and bring Tristan to life on the silver screen… Who’s with me? I’ve even wrote your tweet for you below….
