TNT sets Rachel Carson pic

Roger Gimbel Prods. has purchased the story of the late Rachel Carson, the bestselling author and environmental activist, for a biopic to air on cabler TNT.

Film will be based on the forthcoming book “Rachel Carson: Witness for Nature,” a biography written over a period of nine years by author Linda Lear. It is scheduled to be published in hardcover this September.

Carson gained fame for her book “Silent Spring,” which alerted the world to the dangers of chemicals and man-made biological hazards. The TNT film will detail Carson’s fight against the world’s major chemical corporations following the book’s publication.

“She altered history and started a powerful movement,” Gimbel said.

Camille Thomasson will adapt the book.
