NIm's Island Film - update

Yes, it's official - the Nim's Island film has got its green light, and will be starring Jodie Foster as Alex and Abigail Bresline as Nim.

It's been an interesting time - I had a whirlwind visit to LA in January, catching up with the producer and studio executives, meeting the directors and hearing that these actors might be interested. Then it's been a wait, with fingers crossed, as it looked more and more like it was going to happen. How fabulous to have it all confirmed now! And how amazing to see it on the front page of Variety... not something I'd ever expected in my career as a children's author.

Now the journey continues...

But I wonder who's going to play Jack?
