'Lucky's Revenge,' based on book, heads to film adaptation
The Lucky character, daughter of Gino Santangelo and Maria Grazione, has been featured in six Collins novels, which have collectively sold more than 30 million copies. She’s also been the basis for two NBC miniseries, “Lady Boss” and “Lucky Chances.”
Collins and Amber Entertainment will produce. Barry Krost will executive produce.
Logline for “Lucky’s Revenge” is being kept under wraps. Story will focus on themes of power, passion and deadly revenge.
“She’s a real kick-ass heroine,” Collins said.
Collins and Amber have already partnered on direct-to-DVD romantic thriller “Paris Connections,” which recently completed production in Paris and is premiering in the United Kingdom this summer (Daily Variety, Jan. 22).
Ordesky, a former New Line and Fine Line exec, who produced the “Lord of the Rings” franchise and pics like “Shine,” formed Amber last year with former New Line staffers Maisel and Jane Fleming, as well as documentary and TV producer Lawrence Elman.
