And as a titbit of gossip....Film Four is in talks to back a film called "Ghost Town" optioned by Manchester based EMU Films - the idea sold to them by Tony McMahon, who co-wrote Original Rude Boy with Neville Staple. Neville is a semi-fictionalised character in the movie, as is Pauline Black and Coventry boxer Errol Christie. Christie's biography, No Place To Hide, is being published by Aurum Press in March 2010.
