Happy Sunday, Novel Girls Readers!
A lovley bit of news came down the pipe this week for Novel Girl Lesley (which is good because the rest of her week imploded and she couldn't even manage a post on this week's topic! Just as well that her compatriots were far more on the ball and managed to post all the cool sites she uses for research, anyway!! Bad Novel Girl Lesley - no cookie!)
Anyway - without further ado...
It was announced in Publisher's Marketplace that: "Lesley Livingston's WONDROUS STRANGE has been optioned to screenwriter David Hayter's Dark Hero Productions (Watchmen, X2, and XMEN) & Jeff Sagansky, with Hayter penning the script, by Brendan Deneen on behalf of Objective Entertainment and Jessica Regel at Jean V. Naggar Literary Agency."
And this is what David Hayter himself had to say in response to the announcement being posted:
Speaking for Dark Hero, "We are incredibly excited to translate this remarkable book into the world of visual media. Ms. Livingston is an amazing new talent, and the world she has created is rife with fantastic images, compelling story-lines and complex characters."
Keep you fingers crossed that Sonny and Kelley and company will soon make their way to a screen near you!
