Steve Stabler, co-founder of Motion Picture Corp. of America, has optioned feature rights to Nicole Conn’s romantic novel of star-crossed lovers, “Angel Wings.”
Conn, a writer and director (“Claire of the Moon,” “Passion’s Shadow”), will script the adaptation of her book for an advance worth a reported five-figure against seven-figure back end.
In “Angel Wings,” a poetic, gentlemanly fellow meets an abused and distrustful woman. Despite their differences, the pair are soul mates. Two angels are charged with the daunting task of uniting the unlikely lovers — not only for the couple’s own sakes, but for the destiny of future generations.
Mitch Blumberg and Stabler will produce the film — though not necessarily under his MPCA label. Danielle Parson and Jade Ramsey will co-produce. Brent Baum is set to exec produce.
The deal was brokered by Matthew Snyder of CAA, and Todd Stern of Weissman, Wolff, Bergman, Coleman & Silverman, and by Jillian Manus of Manus and Associates Literary Agency.
