When I read “The Thicket” a few months ago, I was floored by it. The novel was brutal, hilarious, exciting and moving. I became an instant fan of Joe R. Lansdale. I also felt it could make a hell of a western! Then I heard the news Peter Dinklage wanted to star in and help make it, I was smiling for days. Then I got to thinking…who should direct it. What you read in the strip is really just a partial list of my drean directors. I really could go on and on about it. I feel it should be a very dark sparce film with a twisted sense of humor and of course, Peter Dinklage. I’m keeping my fingers crossed. As a fan of western films, this was GREAT news! Here’s hoping it goes well. Stay tuned!
