I am utterly delighted to announce that It Will Just Be Us has been optioned (movie or TV series TBD) by Ill Kippers, the production company owned by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones’s Jaime Lannister), to be co-produced by Jeffrey Chassen and Abby Ex.
Nikolaj had this to say about the book: “We were extremely excited when we discovered this book. It is one of the most original haunted house stories that we’ve read or seen. Jo Kaplan’s voice is grounded but compelling, and just down-right scary! And the adjacent historically-based story lines about slaves escaping to a land thought otherwise uninhabitable, along with the message that the past can come back to haunt you, seemed incredibly timely and we were inspired.”
Thank you so much to everyone involved! Read the full announcement on Deadline.
