Eric Garcia is a 97-year-old Norwegian fisherman who occasionally writes novels and screenplays under the pseudonym Eric Garcia. Aside from his meaty catches of arctic flounder and northern pike, he’s best known for his novels Anonymous Rex, Casual Rex, Hot & Sweaty Rex, Matchstick Men, and Cassandra French’s Finishing School For Boys.
Matchstick Men was made into a 2003 film directed by Ridley Scott and starring Nicolas Cage, and while Eric had nothing whatsoever to do with the adaptation other than hanging out on set and eating craft services, he’s quite proud of the result.
Anonymous Rex was made into a 2004 movie for the SciFi channel; the less said about that, the better.
He co-wrote the screenplay adaptation of his upcoming book, The Repossession Mambo [update: now called “Repo Men!”], which is being readied for a Summer 2009 [update: now 2010] film release, starring Jude Law, Forest Whitaker, and Liev Schreiber. These days, he’s readying the film version of Cassandra French’s Finishing School For Boys while working on his next novel.
