May 13, 2008 - PRLog -- Producer Tony Eldridge has acquired the film right to The Samson Effect, the first in a series of action adventure novels by.......Tony Eldridge. No, that's not a typo just an amazing coincidence and fortuitous turn of events.

"I started getting emails congratulating me on my soon to be published first novel, interesting only because I hadn't written one," said Los Angeles based film producer Tony Eldridge. By doing some research, he discovered there was a Texas based writer also named Tony Eldridge. The premise of his upcoming book and some pre-publication reviews (one by best-selling author Clive Cussler) sounded interesting so the producer contact the author and requested a copy .

He was amazed by how good the story was. "I couldn't put it down, read it cover to cover in one evening and the next morning made a deal for the film rights. Finding great material is what it's all about. It's like panning for gold, you just never know when you're going to get lucky or where that nugget is going to come from."

How close did these two Tony Eldridges come to passing each other as two ships in the night? Author Tony Eldridge said, "When the time came to put my name on the book, I had it narrowed to three: Tony Eldridge, Robert Eldridge {Robert is his first name}, or the pen name of Benjamin Rytin."

Had the author chosen to go with Benjamin Rytin or Robert Eldridge instead of Tony Eldridge, it is unlikely that the producer Tony Eldridge would have ever come across The Samson Effect.

This isn't the first time that producer Eldridge has hit the Mother Load. He is currently producing the feature films, The Equalizer, with Mace Neufled, Harvey Weinstein and Michael Sloan, Patient Number One with Zucker Productions for HBO Pictures as well as The War Magician, Just Desserts and Old Dicks for his Lonetree Entertainment shingle.

Tony Eldridge, author, grew up in Westfield, IN and now lives in Forney, TX. The Samson Effect is currently available on Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, or at any bookstore.
