Script Adaptation of Carmen Gentile’s BLINDSIDED BY THE TALIBAN

I am pleased to announce that in January I optioned the film rights to the fascinating true story memoir, BLINDSIDED BY THE TALIBAN:  A JOURNALIST’S STORY OF WAR, TRAUMA, LOVE, AND LOSS, by Carmen Gentile.  It’s a captivating and piercingly honest account of a war correspondent who, amazingly, survived a rocket-propelled-grenade attack, and went on to a recovery–both physical and emotional–that is at once riveting and deeply engaging.  It immediately struck me as an extremely relatable story for a movie.  So I’m at work turning Carmen’s partly harrowing, partly humorous personal story into a film that, I believe, will be even more captivating on the big screen.  Stay  tuned!
