This was different. It was very obviously the thing I'd written. It was just the thing I'd written transformed, quite brilliantly, into a film script. I got half-way through it, and then the day started, and I had to put it down, reluctantly, and deal with stuff. And then, once the day wound down, I picked the script up again, nervous once more to see how he'd wrap it all together, and read on, very happily, all the way to the end.
It's both of the stories in Murder Mysteries. He's taken the set of literary Detective Story conventions I plugged into in the angel half of the story and reshaped them to the conventions of a Detective Film, logically and effectively. He's used words I wrote wherever he needed it and wrote good stuff to go along with it whenever he went off on his own.
If I were Dimension I'd greenlight it. I suspect that, applying the Terry Pratchett rule of films, this means It Will Never Get Made.
But I think I'll keep my fingers crossed.
