Has anyone approached a film studio about making a movie out of "Angels in Iron"?

The previous message read my mind. The Vienna siege would be a great book. Nicholas C. Prata could really do great things with that event.

The author is currently researching the Battle of Lepanto with the expectation of a 2006 release.

Nick Prata ought to consider writing a novel about the first seige of Vienna (1529). Suleiman's much larger forces were defeated as a result of the resolve of the 70 year-old Nicholas, Graf von Salm, and his Landsknechte. The parallels with Malta are obvious and thee is lots of interesting material (e.g. much of the battle was a desperate underground fight among opposing miners). Evidently Suleiman's sword was only invincible when wielded against commanders who were under 70 ;-)
