The Motel Life goes to Rome
October 20, 2012

For those of you wondering what’s going on with the movie version of Willy’s first novel, The Motel Life… there is news. And it is good. The Motel Life will have its premier screening at the Rome Film Festival in November. In case you didn’t know the movie had been made, it was filmed last year in and around Reno, and stars Emile Hirsch, Stephen Dorff, Dakota Fanning, and Kris Kristofferson. We’ve seen some footage and are pleased to say that Reno looks amazing and there is some great animation by the venerable Mike Smith. We can’t wait to see the final version in Rome.
