So here’s the challenge: Give us a glimpse of what an adaptation of Horse Under Water might look like. Show us a movie poster, a scripted scene, a theme song, an animation, a trailer, a level from a video game, a comic, a selection from a radio play, etc. etc. We’re not too particular. Just get it to us by midnight EST on Dec. 12th by emailing your submission (or a link to your submission) to mister8 (at) mister8.com! Improve your odds with multiple entries!
Another Deighton novel in the same series, An Expensive Place to Die, wasn't filmed either. Spy Story, a book that some people consider part of that series, but Dieghton himself doesn't, was filmed by Lindsay Shonteff in 1976 but didn't star Caine. Caine returned to the role in the 1990s for two movies not based on Deighton novels. He recently stated that he wants to make another, final Palmer movie. Which would be awesome.
Head over to Mister 8 for full contest details... and good luck! I can't wait to see the results come December!
