Ready, set, go…ah well not exactly. Just to clarify some incorrect reports that are circulating the web, Hell’s Angels by Hunter S. Thompson is NOT currently being adapted for the big screen by Tony Scott and Stephan Gaghan. They are in fact working on a project about Sonny Barger based on his autobiography called Hell’s Angel. Apparently earlier reports on various websites confused the two books and thought that it was Hunter’s book that they were working from. Sorry but that is not the case, which is a pity as it deserves the big screen treatment.
I knew it sounded too good to be true. In my opinion they went with the wrong book.
UPDATE: It appears that there is more to this than meets the eye, reports now indicate that the movie might draw from Hunter’s book after all. Head on over to HSTbooks for more info.
