The co-author of the superb, ENnie-nominated Cinema and Sorcery: The Comprehensive Guide to Fantasy Film, Scott Woodard has thrown his support behind the Kickstarter to fund an audio adaptation of Hawk The Slayer.
With a broad portfolio that includes scripting a number of audio dramas for Big Finish, respected game designer Scott said: "I, for one, am thrilled that the story may be continuing in audio (one of my favourite mediums, of course). Let's bring Hawk back to life, shall we? Support this Kickstarter today!"
He wrote the chapter on Hawk in the indispensable Cinema and Sorcery: The Comprehensive Guide to Fantasy Film, calling it a "a rollicking good time".
Graham Richards is looking to raise £3,500 by December 4 to fund production of an official adaptation of the original Hawk The Slayer film into a full-cast audio drama.
Launched just a week ago, the Kickstarter campaign is already well over a third of the way towards its target.
With enough interest - and pledges - this will open the door to future adaptations of the (so-far) unfilmed sequels, Hawk The Hunter and Hawk The Destroyer.
Transitioning to the audio format was a massive success for Doctor Who (just check out Big Finish) during its time off the television, and helped pave the way for the relaunched show in 2005.
Hopefully this new take on Hawk The Slayer, sanctioned by the original's creators, will have the same effect.
