Christmas Crime Story by Sean Chipman…
…has been filmed and you can pre-order it on iTunes. The film opens worldwide on October 24th
How the sausage was made:
Christmas Story (pdf) started out as a 7 Week Challenge Script* written by Sean & Robert Chipman
A botched Christmas Eve liquor store robbery leads down a destructive path for a cop trying to reconcile with his estranged mother, an alcoholic mall Santa, a mentally unhinged man, his vindictive fiancé and her secret lover.
A few years later it was revised as Christmas Story (pdf)
A few years after that, it was picked up for production.
