It’s been so long since I’ve blogged that I’ve almost forgotten how (I’m not exactly doing well on that resolution, am I?), but I had to share today’s amazing news: Paramount bought the rights to Forgotten
and Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) is attached to play London.
I have to say that True Grit has my vote for the best movie of last year, and I was rooting for Hailee to get an Oscar way before this ever happened. So when I heard that she likes Forgotten and agreed to be attached to the project, I was thrilled. Then Paramount and an exceptional team of producers joined the fun.
Of course, not every project purchased in Hollywood gets made into a movie–not even by a long shot–but for today, I am flat out thrilled. Hailee will make a perfect London and here’s crossing fingers and toes that it happens. Today’s news is a great big giant leap in the right direction.

And best of luck next weekend, Hailee. You deserve it, girl.
