Optioned!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Cricket Hill has been optioned!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Doing paperwork next week to make it official.

I'll go into more details soon.

The Company who optioned it totally rocks. Yes, I'm biased of course, but honestly, looking at the movies they've done and at their upcoming slate, I couldn't have found a better home for Cricket Hill.

F-ing fantastic dude!

That is just such a huge huge step. Sit back and enjoy it. Its still a freaking long way to moving before cameras - but you just stepped miles ahead of much of the dogpack.

very very cool....
