Film News: A Film Intuition Follow-up -- Jonathan Blitstein to Direct "Escape to Donegal"

Near the end of 2008, Film Intuition offered readers an exclusive interview with young award-winning filmmaker Jonathan Blitstein whose excellent film-festival hit Let Them Chirp Awhile was starting to make its way into theatres following great reviews and word-of-mouth.

Recently, we were hit up with a great piece of follow-up news on the filmmaker from one of our anonymous L.A. sources and it's official-- Jonathan Blitstein is attached to direct this summer's New York based production of Escape to Donegal.

A psychological science fiction thriller in the vein of Philip K. Dick (who penned the works that inspired Blade Runner, Minority Report, Total Recall, A Scanner Darkly, Paycheck, and Next) that has elements of a fable-- Donegal is slated to begin production in a few months and we'll keep you updated as soon as we learn more.

Congratulations, Jonathan Blitstein on behalf of Film Intuition and thanks to our source and remember-- whether it's an update on a new independent film, reader mail, site suggestions, or press releases-- you can always contact Film Intuition directly via our feedback form.
