I know enough about the movie industry to know that I shouldn't get too excited about a film adaptation of my book The Girl with a Clock for a Heart until the cameras start to roll, but a couple months ago it was optioned by a British film company, with James Marsh (Man on a Wire, Shadow Dancer) attached to write the screenplay and direct. I've talked with James Marsh and he was very enthusiastic about getting a movie made.
Anyway, Screen Daily wrote a little article (press release?) about it here. Pretty amazing, even if nothing ever happens.
