Lansdale is having a Christmas With the Dead

You’ve opened all the presents and recovered from all the turkey and/or eggnog you’ve consumed…but Christmas isn’t over, thanks to prolific genre author Joe R. Lansdale (pictured). He’s executive-producing a feature film based on his upcoming tale Christmas With the Dead.

The Christmas screen version, currently in preproduction, will shoot in June in Lansdale’s home town of Nacogdoches, Texas, with the writer and his collaborators employing students and equipment from the Stephen F.

Writer/director Brian James Fitzpatrick (pictured, whose short Throwaway was previously featured here) recently got into touch to give Fango the heads-up on his latest project, a screen adaptation of Joe R. Lansdale’s story “Mister Weed-Eater.” While still in the very early stages of production, the project has already garnered praise from Lansdale, who will act as co-producer.
