Adapting 'Shirley' For the Screen

Project: Non-funded ProjectProjects

1/05/07 → …

Charlotte Bronte's final completed novel, 'Shirley' has only been adapted once for the screen - a silent movie in 1922 - and the print no longer seems to exist. The novel tells a wonderfully visual story, full of drama and conflict, but the plotting itself is somewhat awry, and moments of high drama are often shied away from. These are the key areas I'm tackling in my adaptation for the production company Green Park Films.
