If I had to tell you the question I get asked most often, it is: Is Shadow Falls being made into a movie or TV series? And it thrills me to know that my fans are waiting for it and wanting it as much as I am. Ahh, but sometimes it seems nothing moves slower than movie making. I mean, it’s slower than a slug inching through a puddle of sleepy time tea. It’s slower than writing a book. Don’t they know we want this to happen…NOW! Haven’t we waited long enough?
Ahh, but I’m here to tell you that things are moving forward. I didn’t say they’re happening fast, but the slug may be out of the sleepy time tea, and moving into a latte. You see, I had a conversation the Director of Scripted Development at CDS, the studio who bought the rights. She had some questions and was just letting me know a little about the process. And I wanted to share it with you. They actually gave my book to several writers and then they wrote a sample scene or scenes of how they would move forward with the film. After reviewing these samples, they pick the best writer who they feel has a better handle on the story and characters.
Can you imagine, there are several script writers working on Shadow Falls? I feel like dancing!! Anyway, we were talking about how I see the story development. Is it a drama with comedic dialogue, or is it a comedy with some drama worked in? I told her that I saw it more like a drama with humor extending from the characters. And we compared it to some of the other shows already out there. So here’s my question to you. What movie/TV series have you seen that you feel best reflects your ideal vision of a Shadow Falls film?
I haven’t done a giveaway in a while, so today I’m giving away a Born To Read T-shirt to one person who leaves an answer. Oh…and Happy New Year!!!
