Oscar for Native movie?

Dan Leonetti and the Screenplay “Woodpecker Waltz”One fine spring morning, Dan’s sister Connie gave him news clipping about a book called Deadly Innocence written by Robert Persky. It was the story about Little Joe Arridy, a mentally challenged person with the mentality of a five-year-old kid. He was wrongfully executed for the rape and murder of a little girl. Sadly the real killer was discovered three months after Joe was killed in Colorado’s Death Row at Canyon City Territorial Prison.After many travails:Production is set for October but it maybe a little later than planned. The movie is set in the winter months so in all actuality, filming will begin sometime this fall or early winter. Course I will have photos from location almost daily if I’m not way to busy. Dennis Quaid signed on with the sole intention of winning an Oscar. The script is a very dynamic and moving piece. I venture to say it should win an Oscar as well.

Interesting story but mostly the article itself is an attempt to create 'buzz' for a film that as yet has to be made. That is to say nothing against the story or the screenplay themselves, only about the anticipatory emotions. Might be worth keeping touch with its progress but then again, not. We shall see...

If the media covers its progress, Newspaper Rock will too.
