MGM options ‘On the Island’

'Twilight' producers in talks to produce

MGM has optioned Tracey Garvis-Graves’ bestselling castaway novel “On the Island,” nabbing the five-week inhabitant of the New York Times bestseller list for the low to mid six figures.

Studio is in negotiations with “Twilight” producers Temple Hill Productions to produce.

The Des Moines, Ia.-based novelist’s second tome centers on a 32-year-old English teacher who tutors a 16-year-old boy at his family’s Maldives summer home. En route to join his family, their seaplane crash-lands, stranding the two on an uninhabited island where they develop a strong relationship that’s tested years later when they’re rescued.

Garvis-Graves is repped by APA on behalf of Dystel & Goderich Literary Agency.
