NY Lovebird Story In Red Tails

Peter Speakman and Michael Galvin will adapt Marie Winn’s 1998 nature novel “Red Tails in Love” into a romantic comedy reports Variety.

Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont are directing the romantic comedy, loosely based on a 1998 nature tome by Wall Street Journal scribe Marie Winn

Nora Ephron previously attempted and ultimately passed on adapting the book about red-tail hawks that nested in a posh building neighboring Central Park.

Kaplan and Elfont decided a different take – using the book as an inspiration for a story about love among New York City birdwatchers.
