Precious”screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher will be the mastermind behind the script, while Sanaa herself will serve as executive producer of the Lionsgate film in addition to her starring role.
It has been years since I have read the trilogy. I would have to refresh my memory. From what I do remember, is Fly Girl is a coming of age story in the late 80’s. It was quite entertaining to read. It’s no wonder the book turned into a trilogy. We just could not get enough of the character Tracy Ellison.
I am looking forward to seeing the movie. My only problem is why did it take so long. I guess I will have to brush up on all 3 books. Who’s down with a book club!?!
