Alexis ‘Wolf’ Pack

Waxman nabs screen rights to book proposal

Gotham-based theater and film production company Alexis Prods., headed by Broadway producer Anita Waxman, has purchased the screen rights to “Hungry Like the Wolf,” an 80-page book proposal about a female werewolf by first-time author Kelley Armstrong.

According to sources close to the negotiations, the preemptive deal is worth low-against-mid-six figures, with set-up and bestseller bonuses attached.

Set in upstate New York, “Hungry” is told through the eyes of lyncanthropic narrator when she is both in human and werewolf state. Over the course of the story, a love triangle develops between her, her boyfriend and another werewolf.

Last week, Penguin acquired U.S. publishing rights for the recently completed thriller.

Best known for producing the current Broadway revival of “Cabaret,” Waxman is currently bringing Tom Stoppard’s “The Real Thing” and Michael John LaChiusa and George C. Wolfe’s “The Wild Party” to Broadway. In addition, she is developing a screen adaptation of Sidney Zion’s novel “Markers.”

“Hungry” will be overseen by Alexis’ Waxman, Karen Arthur, Craig Anderson and Jean Gotlib.

Steve Fisher at APA brokered the film deal on behalf of Armstrong’s Toronto-based lit agent, Helen Heller.
