Sharp Independent has optioned Princess Diaries author Meg Cabot’s “Queen of Babble” series and Jay Barbree’s astronaut memoir “Live From Cape Canaveral” to turn into feature films says The Hollywood Reporter
The ‘Babble’ books center on a fashion-obsessed twentysomething American girl on a journey to London with the third novel set to be released this summer. The producers hope it could be a young female star vehicle.
NBC News correspondent Barbree has covered every manned space flight the U.S. has launched and ‘Canaveral’ focuses on a Florida community of astronauts.
Indie producer Jeff Sharp (“Boys Don’t Cry”) revealed the projects at Sundance, the first development slate for the new production banner which draws material from News Corp. publisher Harper Collins.
