‘Bill Warrington’s Last Chance’ to hit bigscreen

Barry Josephson developing adaptation of family drama

Barry Josephson (“Life As We Know It”) is developing a feature version of James King’s family drama “Bill Warrington’s Last Chance.”

The book won last year’s Amazon Breakthrough Novel award. Alexander Young will exec produce for Josephson Entertainment.

Story centers on a 79-year-old man who wants to reconnect with his estranged adult children before Alzheimer’s ruins his mind. He hatches a plan to “kidnap” his 14-year-old granddaughter for a summer road trip and drops clues along the way in hopes his relatives will unite in an effort to find them.

King, who had written three unpublished novels, wrote “Bill Warrington’s Last Chance” while pursuing a master’s in writing at Manhattanville College in Purchase. N.Y.

Josephson’s producing credits include “Enchanted,” “Aliens in the Attic,” “Hide and Seek” and “The Ladykillers.”
