OPTION NEWS (4-29-14)
Writers and co-producers Steven Barnes and Tananarive Due have optioned their YA+ zombie novel DEVIL’S WAKE to Tonya Lewis Lee, Spike Lee’s wife and a producer at ToniK Productions. ToniK wants to produce a feature version of DEVIL’S WAKE! Lee first saw our short film adapated from DEVIL’S WAKE after Due met her at Atlanta’s Bronze Lens film festival last fall. She read both DEVIL’S WAKE and the sequel, DOMINO FALLS. Here’s ToniK’s mission statement: “ToniK focuses on diversity and women, developing original projects and adapting some of today’s top novels and biographies. At ToniK we believe in telling great stories that need to be told, with an eye towards authenticity. We are women. We are mothers. We are diverse.” So excited!!!
