Whoa whoa whoa! Stop. What?! This amazing book that gave me bare chills in the middle of Summer, made me feel like I was on the windy cliffs, the sea spray hitting my face along with Rebecca and Ferelith is about to be made into a film that I can go and see in an actual cinema, with my own actual eyes?! Well colour me excited!! This is by far my favourite book Marcus has written yet so I cannot wait to see this! He's a fantastic writer and you should all go and check him out. Notably, White Crow, and his new book, Midwinterblood, which I am actually in the middle of reading (and it's ace - if slightly weird!)
Check out the press release below! (And for those interested, my review of White Crow can be found here!)
Independent financier and production company Kerry, Kimmel and Pollack (KK&P) has secured the rights and will co-finance and co-produce the novel WHITE CROW, written by Marcus Sedgwick. The film will be produced and/or executive produced by Kami Garcia, NYT bestselling co-author of The Beautiful Creatures Series, Mark Morgan (The Twilight Saga), Michael Pollack (Quattrocento) & Brett Hudson (Cloud 9).
WHITE CROW is a psychological thriller that centers on a 16 year-old girl who moves to a sleepy seaside town with a deadly past, and discovers what’s on the other side of death.
KK&P plans to shoot the film in the fall of 2012 on Isle of Man, located within the British Isles.
The author, Marcus Sedgwick, has been nominated for the Carnegie Medal, the Edgar Allan Poe, and the Guardian Children’s Book Prize.
WHITE CROW marks Kami Garcia’s entrance into the world of film and television production. While some Young Adult and Adult authors are currently producing their own novels, Garcia is not only producing her upcoming solo novel Unbreakable: Book 1 in The Legion Series from Little, Brown (also with Mark Morgan and KK&P), but other film and television properties as well.
