The first one looks like something out of Miami Vice.

The big budget studio verson is on hold through Scott Free productions (Ridley Scott). They couldn't get the story line where they wanted so it's just sitting right now.

I've read all the books and seen Thunder Man. The movie kinda leaves you hangin and basically says Kramer didn't do it.
IMO, the actual/factual history to the story has everything to make a killer big screen movie but I think their is still too much of his family around for it to be done the way it should.
Let's see, murdered in broad day light,fast boats, fast women, drugs, money, the mob, and my personal favorite...., a failed jail brake using a helicopter that crashes inside the prison fence line

Agree about the movie....

I prefer the Thunder Man Theme Song Video by Big Bang Audio....if you can get past the band being a subjectively poor 80s imitation of Tom Petty.. and instead focus on all the cool boat racing clips in the video, it is a better waste of time than the movie...especially since it is only 3+ minutes long..and FREE :-)

Oh fair warning, if you watch/listen to it more than a few times it can get stuck in your head...no comment if that is a good or a bad thing. :-)

I'd love a list of books, went looking for them a while back and couldn't find them
