Gotham Group gets ‘Where Things Come Back’

Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Lindsay Williams, Eddie Gamarra to produce

Gotham Group has acquired feature rights to Cory Whaley’s thriller “Where Things Come Back,” with Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Lindsay Williams and Eddie Gamarra producing.

“Things,” Whaley’s first novel, is set in a small Arkansas town and told through the eyes of a 17-year-old after a birdwatcher spots a species of woodpecker thought to be extinct since the 1940s, sparking a flurry of woodpecker-mania — while the teen’s younger brother has suddenly and inexplicably disappeared. Story is intertwined with that of a young missionary in Africa, who has lost his faith and is searching for meaning.

“Where Things Come Back” was published by Simon & Schuster’s Atheneum Books for Young Readers in May.

Gotham Group produced recent release “Abduction.”
