I’ve had a number of folks randomly drop me a line wondering what became of the last work-for-hire feature that I directed, DEADLY STINGERS (which I not-so-affectionately refer to as DEADLY STINKERS). Much to my surprise, in recent weeks I’ve gotten word that the movie is actually playing on television in the United Kingdom after sitting on a shelf for nearly 7 years (?!).

As a result of it finally getting airplay, it’s all over the torrent sites now, just waiting for anyone who really wants to see it to download it. (Or, if you just want a guilt-free taste of the movie, you can check out the original promo trailer.) But remember, if you’re not in the U.K., Google is your friend.

P.S.: I have no idea who did the artwork above but I thought it was kind of cool for something thrown together for a torrent site. Kudos!

I never wanted to be famous and I never wanted to be rich. Ask and ye shall receive! ๐Ÿ˜‰
