Anna Parnell, Petticoat Rebellion movie

Petticoat Rebellion – The Movie!

Yes, at long last, the movie of the book is in development! Well, the early stages of development … the very, very early stages … but from tiny seeds do tall trees grow.

The Irish Film Board has agreed to reconsider ‘Petticoat Rebellion, The Anna Parnell Story’, for feature script development funding.

This means that, from next Monday, March 11th, I will start writing a ‘treatment’, i.e. an exciting short-story version, of the book. The Film Board will decide in May or June whether they will fund a full feature film script. And then it’s time to find a producer and put together a package of director, actors and everyone else the enormous team needed to make a feature film.

This week, I’m laid up in bed with a back strain, on painkillers, and unable to do much, other than poke my iPhone (hurray for the WordPress app for iPhone!) and read, which means I’ll be re-reading Petticoat Rebellion with fresh eyes.

Here’s to Petticoat Rebellion – The Movie!
