It would probably have to be a mini-series, for the length, but I think
"Fire and Hemlock".  It would be so cool to see the blendings of Nowhere and
Now Here, and there are so many great visual bits - the giant in the
supermarket, the face(s) reflected in the mirror(s), the Chinese horse, the
newspaper monster, the fun-fair, and of course the wavery nothing-y pool at
the end.

I've not much idea who you could cast, though; I don't watch enough movies
or television.  If he could do the accent, Orlando Bloom *might* work for
Tom, and with a bit of weight on him "Cancer Man" from the X-Files might do
Morton Leroy.  I'm rather lost on Laurel and Polly, though.

Until the sky falls on our heads...
