Optioned!

I got the news from my agent yesterday that that the movie option for my novel THE COLD KISS was finalized and that it went to Jane Startz (ELLA ENCHANTED, THE INDIAN IN THE CUPBOARD), with Ole Bornedal (NIGHTWATCH, JUST ANOTHER LOVE STORY) to direct.

I couldn’t be more excited about this. The people at Jane Startz are passionate about this project, and Ole Bornedal is absolutely brilliant. His film, JUST ANOTHER LOVE STORY, is stunning. If you haven’t seen it and would like to check it out, you can stream it on Netflix.

Here’s the trailer.



What a great way to start the year.

Congrats on the option, the other trailer looks good, so if that's an indication of their production, cool. I stumbled across your blog on Google, good luck with everything, another John Rector (NY)
