This just in: the dude who gave me his book, The Last Duel: A True Story of Crime, Scandal, & a Trial by Combat in Medieval France, is going to have his book made into a movie by Martin Scorsese. Read about it here in this article, Martin Scorsese Goes Medieval. Though I must warn you, this post already has more information in it than the linked article, which fails to mention my pivotal role in publicizing said book.
And Dude Who Gave Me a Book, I expect a copy of the movie when it hits DVD. I will review it sometime after I get around to reviewing 2004’s King Arthur movie. And though I don’t expect it, a job as a “medieval consultant” would rock, too. Just mention it to Marty for me.
