"Terri: The Truth" Coming to a Screen Near You?
With Mike Farrell and Lawrence Bender optioning the film rights to Michael Schiavo's book, "Terri: The Truth," it's only a matter of time before the Schindlers' version is produced. The Farrell-Bender project aims to tell Michael and Terri's story from the beginning of their romance. Farrell sees the story as "almost Shakespearean," complete with feuding families and ultimate tragedy.
The drama is certainly there, but I have to wonder when this saga will finally end. Certainly not anytime soon. Michael Schiavo has formed a political action committee called TerriPac which aims to "restore personal freedoms and individual rights." The Schindlers, meanwhile, have formed The Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation, Inc., "a non-profit group dedicated to ensuring the rights of disabled, elderly and vulnerable citizens against care rationing, euthanasia and medical killing." The foundation was actually incorporated in 2001 to fight to keep Terri Schiavo alive, but changed its focus after her death.
