Cult film director Donald Cammell, co-wrote this story with Brando in 1978. Cammell had known Brando since the 1960s and originally tried to model an early version of the film Performance around his involvement. San-Tan began as a film script Brando but lost interest. Cammell having done so much historical research, developed the story into a novel, but again nothing from Brando….. It was posthumously published in 2005.
