This is probably the cyber-equivalent to scrawling my phone number on the wall of a public washroom stall, but here goes...
Rumours are swirling out there that there's film interest in Magnifico! I always thought it should be a movie and it sounds like there's at least one producer out there who agrees. I hope they call soon to talk to me, or my agent at Curtis Brown. We are keen!
An Italian-Canadian family story, a plucky 11 year old, a handsome accordion teacher, a "royal" time in history, a dramatic underground survivor story and a tale of two countries--leaving Italy and coming to Canada -- with a superstar musical instrument at the heart of it all, well, sounds like a movie to me!
I hope we get this sorted out soon so I can uncross my fingers!
