Don Anderson

Don Anderson was a tremendously talented artist, director and writer. 

The physical disabilities he suffered throughout his life were never officially diagnosed. At birth, his mother was told that he would slowly deteriorate and would eventually become a vegetable. 

Wisely, she paid attention to her child instead of the doctors, and raised Don to be fearless. Through the years, Don endured multiple surgeries but crippling disabilities never became the focus of his life. He excelled academically and creatively. A fine illustrator and designer, he lent his talents to many notable projects in Hollywood. His heart, however, was always in storytelling. And if anybody had a story to tell, it was Don Anderson.

Encouraged by friend and colleague Guillermo Del Toro, Don completed the screenplay for Demonji Joe before he died in 2010. In it, he shares intimate, often funny and sometimes heartbreaking details of a remarkable life.

Don led by example. He followed his dreams and let nothing stop him. His parties and legions of friends are legendary. He also made an amazing Gumbo.

TrueFriend Productions is honored to bring his remarkable story to the screen.
