IndieReader is THRILLED to announce a film project partnership with Bethany Stirdivant of Book Ends Entertainment, a boutique literary management and production company.
Under the terms of the agreement, Stirdivant will have first look of all paid review titles featured on the IndieReader site, with the option of considering them for feature film or television series projects.
“Increasingly, self-published titles—from “Legally Blonde” to indie Queen Amanda Hocking’s “Trylle Trilogy”—are in demand as film and television properties,” said Amy Edelman, IndieReader president and CEO. “As the premier resource for indie news and professionally reviewed indie titles, it makes sense that we can offer our authors these opportunities via this partnership.”
Book Ends clients include: Amanda Goodwin, who will helm her second feature, “The Telling of the Shoes”, starring Lacey Chabert later this month; Carrie Freedle who is writing an “Untitled Tokyo Thriller” for Far Hills Pictures and recently adapted a project entitled “Love Song Losers” for Laurence Mark to produce and Walter Robot to direct; Adam Morrison who wrote “Chateau Moureaux” for Contradiction Films; Jeff Treppel and Kevin Almeida who are writing an action-comedy “Never Send Flowers” for Phoenix Pictures, among others.
Book Ends recently optioned a self-help book from “Love Stylist” Tristan Coopersmith and a TV series is currently in development with Wendy Goldman attached to adapt and Axelrod-Ett Productions producing; Book Ends also partnered with Contradiction Films and optioned “Diamond Ruby” by Joseph Wallace for Carrie Freedle to adapt.
Stirdivant, the founding partner at Book Ends, adds “I am very excited about this partnership with IndieReader. Their expansive library enables us to explore new ideas in film and television. Together we have an opportunity to bring “independence” to the forefront.”
