IN DEVELOPMENT

Ridley Scott has optioned screen rights to Fae, the young adult fantasy bestseller written by sibling authors Colet and Jasmine Abedi. The title was published last summer by Diversion Books and is the first in a trilogy. Protagonist Caroline Ellis reaches 16, a birthday that triggers the battle fated for centuries between the Dark and Light Fae, forcing her to confront who she is and discover whether her tumultuous relationship with Devilyn Reilly, who’s battling the power of the Dark within him, will destroy them both along with humanity. Scott and Giannina Facio will produce.

    Ridley Scott, Giannina Facio and Colet Abedi have optioned The Devil In The Kitchen: Sex, Pain, Madness And The Making Of A Great Chef. They intend to make a film about Marco Pierre White, who wrote the memoir of his extraordinary life. White had a tumultuous childhood upbringing before becoming a rock star chef in 1980s London. Surrounded by music, fashion and food during London’s cultural evolution, White trained Gordon Ramsay and Mario Batali and was a pioneer of the celebrity chef movement. He was the first and youngest chef to win three Michelin stars and was also the only one to ever give them all back. He was the original chain-smoking, pot-throwing enfant terrible of the kitchen.

      Ridley Scott and Giannina Facio have acquired screen rights to Embraced By The Light, the bestselling book by Betty J. Eadie. Scott and Facio will produce with Colet Abedi. While films like Heaven Is For Real have overachieved at the box office, this was the book that started the trend of people describing near death experiences where the subject glimpsed the afterlife before being pulled back to life. Eadie, at age 31, died for four hours after complications from a hysterectomy operation. The book covers her experience and things she learned that she could not have known. It sold over 20 million copies when published in 1992, and was the number one book on the New York Times Bestseller List for 78 weeks.
