Boise's Alan Heathcock has been burning up the bestseller charts and earning rave reviews with his debut book, Volt. But soon, his work may be making its way through the film festival circuit, as well.
Heathcock's story "Fort Apache" is in the process of being adapted by director Addison Mehr into a short film.
The film is currently in pre-production. As of April 17, filmmakers were in the process of casting and storyboarding for the shoot, which will take place in upstate New York.
A date for the film's completion has not yet been set. But since it will serve as Mehr's senior thesis for the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU, it shouldn't be too far off.
