I’m so excited to announce that the first three books of The Driven Trilogy –Driven, Fueled, and Crashed—have been optioned for film by the company Passionflix. They want to bring Colton and Rylee to life!!!
Are you excited? I am too. So I’ll give you a minute to jump around with me in excitement and then I’ll give the details.
Are you calm yet? Me neither but I’ll get started.
A few months ago I was approached by the ladies at Passionflix about bringing Colton and Rylee to film. I was apprehensive at first—Could they do the story justice? Would readers be upset if ‘their Colton’ wasn’t cast? Then there is the whole ‘books are better than movies’ thing . . . but after speaking with the founders and watching their work with Alessandra Torre on Hollywood Dirt, I decided to take the leap and do it.
The great news is I’ll be as hands on as possible. Do you think I’d actually just hand my books over and wash my hands of them? Heck no. The other good news is that they want you to be involved as possible as well! Not only do they want your input on who to cast, but they also want YOU to be in the movie (keep reading below to find out how)! Pretty cool, right?
So now I’m sure you want the details… so here they are…
WHEN: Driven is slated to start filming at the latter part of this year with a proposed release date of May 2018
