RCR Pictures Hires Marc Maurino to Script "Wolves of Fairmount Park"

  Heard this week that Marc Maurino has been hired to write the script for "Wolves of Fairmount Park." Marc recently sold the script for his thriller, "Inside the Machine" to CBS films, and I think he's an excellent choice to adapt the novel. You can read an interview that Marc did with the screenwriting website "Go Into The Story," where he mentions 'Wolves' at the end of the interview and references a couple of films (Frozen River and Winter's Bone) that I thought were amazing.
'Wolves' is being by developed by Robin Schorr and Dan Seligman of RCR Pictures, who are also in production on a movie called "The Good Time Gang," with Jonah Hill and Mark Wahlberg. You can read about the deal with Marc in Variety and at Collider.com.
It's been a great time for friends and family, too. My daughter Rachel has a manuscript going out to publishers soon, and my buddy Jon McGoran recently got a great two-book contract with Tor/Forge with his new eco-thriller, Drift.

  2. Thanks, Dennis! Can't wait to see Wolves on the big screen, so I can say, "Yeah, but the book was better."
