Rights sold to Wall Street tome ‘Bond Girl’

Gran Via Prods., Wild Fiesta Prods. will adapt

Mark Johnson’s Gran Via Prods. and Wild Fiesta Prods. are taking a stroll on Wall Street, picking up feature rights to Erin Duffy’s recently published novel “Bond Girl.”

Johnson, Gran Via exec Tom Williams and Wild Fiesta’s Ben Horton are producing and out to screenwriters.

“Bond Girl” centers on a college grad’s efforts to crack an elitist boys’ club at one of the Street’s most esteemed firms. She begins to climb her way up to the top — fielding a barrage of “friendly” practical jokes and eluding the advances of a stalker who’s also one of the firm’s biggest clients — just as the financial crisis hits.

Duffy spent a decade working on Wall Street before penning the novel.

“We think this is very much a tale of the time,” Johnson told Variety.

Gran Via is sitting on a quartet of completed feature productions: coming-of-age drama “Not Fade Away”; drama “Won’t Back Down,” starring Viola Davis and Maggie Gyllenhaal; WWII drama “Bless Me Ultima,” directed by Carl Franklin; and surfing biopic “Of Men and Mavericks,” starring Gerard Butler. Johnson’s also an exec producer on AMC’s “Breaking Bad.”

WME repped Duffy in the sale of the book rights.
