The Man in the Flying Lawnchair is a feature-film that I wrote and plan to direct. Michael Besman (About Schmidt) is attached to produce.
The film tells the true story of Larry Walters, who in 1982 attached 42 weather balloons to a lawnchair and floated 16,000 feet above Los Angeles.
Larry miraculously survived, achieving his child-hood dream, and capturing the imagination of the world.
But after the limelight faded, his story took a series of ups and downs. Eleven years after his flight, Larry hiked into the LA National Forest and shot himself in the heart.
'The Man in the Flying Lawnchair' is the true-story behind the urban legend. The film reveals the many layers of a seemingly ordinary man who dared to live an extra-ordinary dream.
