From the Leucrota Press blog: "Gharial Productions has just optioned movie rights to Shaun Jeffrey's The Kult.

The screenplay, adapted from the novel by Danielle Kaheaku and Robert Hunter, went into negotiations in the middle of November with Gharial Productions and has finally come out with a solid contract offer and acceptance by Leucrota Press.

Gharial Productions is an emerging movie and film production company based in San Diego, California, and is currently working on pre-production arrangements for the filming of the movie, tentatively scheduled to begin June 2010."


Anyone who has had a book optioned knows that it's far from actually being filmed, but it's still a nice early Christmas present.

Congratulations and good luck getting the green light, I think they call it.

Congrats, and I hope you signed on for a piece of the gross, not net, and not "adjusted gross" because that's almost as bad as net.

Thank, Jon. Long way to go, but it's the first step :)
