Lionsgate Finds God & California

Chris Millis author of "Small Apartments" has sold the rights to his upcoming novel before its release. The newest book is called "God & California" and Lionsgate will be developing the book for a theatrical relase. The story follows an Iraq war vet and a disgraced Catholic priest who travel from Gotham to California in a pink 1975 El Dorado in a week, breaking the Ten Commandments one by one. (Sounds like a really interesting story, that has huge potential) Millis said casting could go any number of ways. "The protagonist is a young, early- to mid-20s guy, and then there's a mentor figure who's the drive-along partner," he explained. "I usually leave the roles open to interpretation -- I'm surprised at who people suggest." Follow the link to read an excerpt from God and California.

Thoughts on God & California? Sounds like an amazing script? Have you read Small Apartments? Did you know it has also been adapted to film by Deviant Films?
