One of the things that we love most is books. There are so many – so many good ones out there that get recognition and those that don’t. But when one of our favorites gets optioned, it’s hard for us not jump up and down and do a happy dance.
That’s right, it’s been a favorite of ours was optioned – Anna Carey’s Blackbird. And it was optioned by a studio that we love immensely, Lionsgate.
Danny Mackey is penning the script for the adaptation. You may know the show, Aim High, which starred Jackson Rathbone and if you do, you are familiar with Danny’s work.
When we asked Anna about the adaptation she said, “I’m thrilled that Lionsgate was as excited about Blackbird as we were. I couldn’t imagine the book being at a better place than the studio that produced The Hunger Games and Divergent. It really is a dream.”
We don’t doubt that it is Anna. We’re very excited for you and can’t wait to see Blackbird come to life. You deserve it!
The second book in the series, Deadfall, is due out June 16th.
