I'm very excited to announce that film rights to Bottle Rocket Hearts have been optioned to producers Michelle Mama, Stephanie Markowitz, and Sonia Hosko, and executive producers Jennifer Weiss and Simone Urdl, who co-produced Sarah Polley's Away From Her. I've been hired to co-write the script with Linsey Stewart, a writer from the CBC TV show Being Erica. The deal was arranged by Sarah Cooper of The Saint Agency, on behalf of Samantha Haywood of the Transatlantic Literary Agency.
Woot! Now...who will play Eve? Suggestions?
