Back in 2007 I got wind of a very strange Hollywood story. A week before release a copy of the indie movie The Man From Earth was set to open, a copy found its way onto the internet. While this is not unfortunately a rare instance, the MPAA has been battling the  problem for years, what was interesting was the approach that film makers Richard Schenkman and Eric Wilkinson took. In many ways they embraced the situation.

Here we are in 2013 and the team are once again planning a movie, a sequel to Man From Earth.

i will be sitting down with Richard Schenman to discuss the new project
