Acquire the rights Robert Stone’s best-selling and award winning novel, Dog Soldiers, from 1973. Have Stone kibitz in on a meticulously faithful screenplay by Judith Rascoe. Find locations from San Diego, to L.A., Berkeley and Mexico. Spend whatever is left on an up and coming, lean and very talented cast of mostly then, unknowns. Then lateral it all to budding Czech director, Karel Reisz.
