Prestigious daily indie newspaper "ELEFTHEROTYPIA" (see link above) had a double interview of myself and novelist Michael Kokkinaris by journalist and columnist Giannis Triantafyllou and our trials and tribulations with corrupted political and culture establishment in Greece and local authorities in the island of Rhodes to bring the novel to the big screen under the working title "ANIMA". So we moved to Tunisia for the exteriors and forget about the Rhodes.
Local judges and authorities in Rhodes took away from Anthony Quinn's estate the land that they have given to the screen legend-a disgrace! "GUNS OF NAVARONE" helped built the tourism industry at the island but local politicos have no memory, no ethical standards, no dignity. (AND JUSTICE FOR NOBODY!)
"ANIMA" , our Knights of Saint John VS the Ottoman Empire feature, is a cross between "300" and "TROY" and its whirlwind action/adventure/fantasy plot unfolds at the end of the 14th century and early 15th century...The historical facts, the military tactics are real, the love story fictional.
