Jack of All Trades

Jack of All Trades

Okay, this is one of those true stories where, if I had enough money, I would try and buy the rights…

Have you heard of Jack Idema? If not, the saga of why this American ended up in an Afghanistan prison should compel the hell out of you. Some producer needs to buy these rights, cast a charismatic but strong actor as Idema, and I think it would be an amazing film.

Read this story from a recent issue of Rolling Stone… and see what you think. If anything, as you’ll see, there is a documentary infamously in the works. Hell, the filmmaker is in jail with Idema. Imagine the bidding war over that documentary, if it’s half-way decent.
