Stephen King Fancast: Willa feat. Christopher Birk

Check-In on GetGlue

The podcast is back! It’s been a long time coming since Mevio shut this podcast down (read more about that here) but it’s finally back! I am still bitter about the shutdown, however, so feel free to Tweet your hate to them on my behalf. >:)

On this episode, I am joined by  the Director of  the “Willa” adaptation, Christopher Birk. We discuss the “Willa” short story from “Just After Sunset,” and the making of Chris’ film adaptation of “Willa.” Should you be interested in finding out more info on the film, you can watch the trailer below and visit the Official Website, at Alphatree Productions.

Also, I did an interview with Christopher on this blog a few months back, so feel free to give that a read, if you like, by CLICKING HERE.
