I have some exciting news for you guys - Blue by Lisa Glass has been optioned for film! How cool is that?! I love Blue (you can read my review here) so I'm very happy for Lisa, and I hope it all goes ahead and gets made one day. *thinks up dream cast*
Lisa signed the contracts yesterday, and here's a snippet from the press release, courtesy of The Bookseller:
US producer Leighton Lloyd will this Saturday (30th August) officially sign the film rights to YA surfing title Blue by Lisa Glass at a ceremony in Cornwall.
Lloyd and Glass will publically finalise the acquisition at the Roxy Girl Surf Event in Newquay, one of Cornwall’s main surfing towns.
Blue, published by Quercus in June, is about the relationship between 16-year-old Newquay girl Iris Fox and a famous young pro-surfer called Zeke Francis.
