I just read the new blog post Melina Marchetta (goddess divine) posted on her wordpress in which she talks about selling the film writes to Saving Francesca.... but more importantly, THIS:
"Strangely, is difficult because of its simplicity, but writing the treatment surprised me and reminded me just how much I loved those kids and Mia and Bobby Spinelli. They’ve also come back into my life at an important time for writing because 24 year old Jimmy Hailler is camping out in my head. It’s not just his story, but a bit of a four hander and it will definitely be an adult one rather than YA. It’s interesting that I didn’t know where Jimmy and his life was until I played with circumstances in Froi and Quintana’s life."
Oh yeah, that's right. Read it again if you don't believe me, but it totally sound like....
WE'RE GETTING A JIMMY BOOK!!!! AS IN AN ACTUAL BOOK WHERE WE GET TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE MYSTERIOUS (BUT OH SO LOVABLE) JIMMY HAILLER!
Cue the intense fangirling.
