Talk about putting your finger in every pie, this is straight from the pages of Variety and stolen directly from Publisher’s Lunch —
“Amazon has optioned screen rights to Keith Donohue’s bestselling novel The Stolen Child. Amazon will move to secure a filmmaker and then a studio partner to turn the fantasy into a live-action feature.”
I get it. Big-deal old-time tycoons like Howard Hughes built defense contractors, bought Vegas and made movies.
Big-deal dot-com tycoons like Jeff Bezos build e-tailers, start space travel companies, and… make movies.
I’m just jealous. This is a well-reviewed book published by Nan Talese. I can’t wait to see Amazon make hay as a movie producer. Could be fun. Will they scare DVD producers as much as they do publishers?
