Hustle the East – Heading to Hollywood?
“Hustle the East.” the novel about Laos, has been called “cinematic” and now the novel has inspired a script for a feature film.
The screenplay focuses on the adventures and dilemmas facing Chansamone, the third narrator in the memoir-style of the novel. The other principal characters, Benny Bendit, Jack Gaines, Tommy Mangold and Sangkhom, are viewed largely through Chansamone’s lens.
The first evaluation of the script comes from Black List, a network of professional screenwriters and buyers.
