Anyone heard of a movie supposedly being made called, "Angry White Pajamas"?

When is it due out?

In the meantime, have you read the book?
I heard about the movie, too, from aikiweb:

Re: Popularity of Aikido

I have heard that Miramax is making Angry White Pyjamas, which chronicles the author's Yoshinkan Aikido training in Japan, into a film. Upon release, I am curious to see if there will be flood of briefly-inspired students into the aikido dojos. Supposedly, such a phenomenon occured when the Karate Kid first came out.

I read the book, and am certainly not looking forward to the movie

hehe. dont forget about what kill bill did to kendo and iai for a bit

i quite like the book.
though i felt it could have had more aiki in it
though then it wouldnt have attracted a wider audience.

if there is a film id be interested in seeing it.

Yeh I enjoyed the book too, but I doubt there'll be a film of it. Also, I checked IMDb and it has no record of it's upcoming production.
