"Can you not read the signs of the times?"

Mark my words, the "right" to die is where it's going to be at in Primetime this year. Or, in another words, "Killing the chronic is the new gay."

Let's pray for Mike Farrell. Catholic...

<Hollywood to Turn Michael's Book on Terri Schiavo Into Biased Movie Email this article

Hollywood, CA (LifeNews.com) -- A group of Hollywood producers have purchased the rights to Michael Schiavo's book to produce what will likely be a biased, one-sided movie on his victorious legal battle in his efforts to euthanize his former wife Terri.

According to Variety, a group of four producers, including Mike Farrell and Lawrence Bender, purchased the movie rights to the book, Terri: The Truth. The movie could either appear in theaters or be a made-for-television special.

Farrell and Bender would produce any project in conjunction with their respective partners, Marvin Minoff and Kevin Brown.

"The story is almost Shakespearean in the warring of the families and the great love story between the (couple)," Minoff told Daily Variety. "It starts off so beautifully and then ends so chaotically."

The producers don't plan to hire a writer to work up the script for the movie until they can sell the project to a television network or film studio to finance the effort. The have indicated they plan to start the movie with the beginning of Terri and Michael's relationship.

Mike Farrell is a former "M*A*S*H*" actor who stared in several movies after the famous television series and produced the movie Patch Adams about a doctor who used humor to help in treating patients.

Lawrence Bender is a longtime movie producer and was behind such films as The Great Raid, Havana Nights, Kill Bill, Good Will Hunting and Pulp Fiction.

Any movie based on Michael's book will almost undoubtedly tell just one side of the controversial story surrounding Terri and Michael's attempts to kill her.

Michael's book presents a one-sided view on allegations that his physically abused Terri and waited to call 911 after her collapse, about his failure to follow court instructions while serving as Terri's guardian, and his ill treatment of Terri's family and preventing them from being present when their daughter died after the painful 13 day starvation and dehydration death.

interesting thought on the "killing the chronic is the new gay"

but it seems to me 2004 had 2 big "killing the chronic" movies...namely The Sea Inside and The Million Dollar Baby (the best foreign language picture and the best picture).

This story is very interesting...it seems much more movie of the week like than a major theater event.

But I guess only time will tell.
