REPO MEN director Miguel Sapochnik and co-writer Eric Garcia recently gave interviews to FANGORIA about their experience making the long-in-development project, which Universal released this past Friday. The movie didn’t make a big dent at the box office, finishing fourth over the weekend and bringing in a disappointing $6.15 million. However, REPO MEN fans might be interested to learn that Garcia has posted “The Telltale Pancreas”—his short story that inspired both his novel and the feature film—on his website.
While the movie has generated a great deal of criticism and choler from REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA fans, we’re not going to get into a “what came first” argument. We’ll leave that to the REPO and REPO! supporters. However, if you want to read Garcia’s short story, you can visit his official site and check it out. Here’s what Garcia had to say:
“So on request from a fan (thanks, Emily!), I’ve decided to upload THE TELLTALE PANCREAS, the original short story that led to THE REPOSSESSION MAMBO novel and eventually to REPO MEN the film. Up ’til now, it had only been seen by a small group of people—my agents, SFX guru and director Bob Kurtzman (hi, Bob!), a bunch of friends, and some editors at a few magazines who rejected it, damn them. Please keep in mind it was written just a couple years after I got out of college—I was but a babe of 25—so if the style isn’t up to snuff, apologies.”
