I am over the moon to announce that I have just signed a film deal!
Leading Hindi film studios B4U Motion Pictures have bought the Indian language rights for I Am Watching You.
It's not yet decided where the thriller will be filmed but B4U Motion Pictures have exciting plans for the production in Hindi, saying : ‘We are well poised to create a large reach for this movie which we feel has themes which will resonate across cultures.’
The deal came about after Creative Producer Meenakshi Sharma at B4U fell in love with the story. She said : 'What has attracted us to I Am Watching You is firstly, of course, that it is a thriller with terrific suspense and intrigue – but within that there is characterisation and layering which makes it stand apart. The story deals with the world of teenagers today and the adults grappling with how to respond. It’s the relevance of these themes we would like to translate on screen to find resonance across cultures.’
B4U make a wide range of movies including thrillers and classic drama, distributed to Indian film lovers around the world.
Latest releases include the moving family drama CAKE and the acclaimed Three Storeys.
Huge thanks to Hayley Steed at the Madeleine Milburn Agency for negotiating this deal. And crossed fingers that the next announcement is for an English language film deal too! Exciting times...
