TO SLEEP IN A SEA OF STARS
GETS A MOVIE ADAPTATION!
It was released last month, and now a new book which took Christopher Paolini ten years to write after his Eragon saga, TO SLEEP IN A SEA OF STARS, which your trusted spy is currently translating for the readers in his
country, has sold movie adaptation rights to Bruna Papandrea’s Made Up Stories and Snoot Entertainment! Christopher Paolini’s sci-fi novel from Tor Books, which he will adapt for the movie himself, follows xenobiologist Kira Navárez who always dreamed of life on new worlds. Now she's awakened a nightmare. During a routine survey mission on an uncolonised planet, Kira finds an alien relic. At first she's delighted, but elation turns to terror when the ancient dust around her begins to move. As war erupts among the stars, Kira is launched into a galaxy spanning odyssey of discovery and transformation. First contact isn't at all what she imagined, and events push her to the very limits of what it means to be human. While Kira faces her own horrors, Earth and its colonies stand upon the brink of annihilation. Now, Kira might be humanity's greatest and final hope.

TV SERIES ON ONE OF BAROQUE'S GREATEST FEMALE PAINTERS
And here's another new period set series for us: as Deadline reports Viacom CBS International Studios has announced that they are developing a TV series based on the life of Italian female artist Artemisia Gentileschi, who is considered to be one of the most accomplished painters in the Baroque
period. Pan's Labyrinth producer Frida Torresblanco will develop the project about Gentileschi, who was known for her violent, seductive autobiographical portraits. The series will be based on Mary Garrard’s non-fiction academic text, Artemisia Gentileschi: The Image of the Female Hero in Italian Baroque Art, which includes 400-year old transcripts of the artist’s rape trial from the Florentine archives.
