NEWS! MOVIE NEWS!!!

Hello there! EXCITING NEWS!!!! Daughter of Smoke & Bone is one step closer to becoming a movie! Some of the press releases are below. You know we have an amazing producer, and a fantastic studio. And now a screenwriter is on board! His name is Stuart Beattie, he's from Australia, and he has been in the business for a long time, and has penned a bunch of big, intricate movies as well as smaller, more intimate ones. Collateral! Thirty Days of Night! Pirates of the Caribbean! I've read some of his scripts and they're awesome. We met in LA last month and he blew us all away with his ideas for the adaptation, and then Universal flew Stuart up to Portland a couple of weeks ago so that we could go over notes on the treatment. Now the first draft of the script is in the works. I couldn't be happier!







YAY!

Ooh, can we speculate on directors? I've had two candidates in mind for some time.

My first choice would be P.J. Hogan, given his CGI-intensive and romance-heavy adaptation of Peter Pan. My second choice is Troy Nixey, because any protege of Guillermo del Toro would be more than qualified to deliver dazzling monsters and awesome horror while keeping the film's heart intact.

I'm very interested to hear more fan suggestions, and I can't wait to hear more news as it comes. From one Portlander to another, Laini, all the best.
