I've been sitting on this for what feels like forever (but it's really only been a month), and today I got word from agent that I can FINALLY tell people about it.
The Trylle Trilogy has been optioned for a film. Terri Tatchell - Oscar nominated screenplay writer and Bradbury Award winner for District 9 - is going to adapt the screenplay for the trilogy.
Now, before you get too excited, I'm going to clarify - she's only optioned to write the screenplay. This is no guarantee that this will be a movie. Things fall apart all the time for various reasons. And I have no idea how long it would be before a movie would be released, if it were to even come to frution.
With all that said - I am still very, very excited. Terri Tatchell is tremendous. Regardless of how this all turns out, it really is an honor that she wants to do this, and it's still pretty neat that this happened, even if Switched never becomes a film.
Will Switched ever be a movie? I honestly don't know. What I do know is that I'm very excited, and at this point, I'm cautiously optimistic. Also, Terri Tatchell thinks Michael Wincott is awesome. And she's Canadian. And District 9 was a really rad movie.
So that's some of the big news I've had going on. It is really awesome.
