"Sparks" is a 24 minutes short film starring Carla Gugino as Robin Harris and Eric Stoltz as Joseph Canavan.

There were no news about this project lately, but now I read that the movie will be shown at the Sundance Festival 2009.

The film adaptation of Elmore’s short story, Sparks, will be included among 46 U.S. films, (96 short films total) at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.

The film is described in the Sundance catalog as:

The story of a former rock-and-roll goddess who may or may not have burnt her house down.
Adapted from the writings of crime novelist Elmore Leonard.

Sparks is adapted from the story of the same name, published in Elmore’s short story collection, When the Women Come Out to Dance and Other Stories. The film is produced by Look at me Films, which is Megan Freels (Elmore’s granddaughter) and her partner, Melanie Donkers. Sparks is written for the screen and directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The cast is headed by Carla Gugino, Eric Stoltz and Xander Berkeley. The voice of Kristen Johnson is also featured.
