Miramax hot for ’32 Candles’

Studio acquires rights to Ernessa Carter novel

Miramax has acquired feature rights to Ernessa Carter’s “32 Candles,” a fairy tale about an ugly duckling from a Mississippi town who escapes to Los Angeles.

The novel’s central character reinvents herself as a beautiful lounge singer and runs into her high school crush; unaware of her true identity, he finds himself as in love with her as she once was with him.

Harper picked up publishing rights to Carter’s book in May.
