A screenplay for…

It takes a long time to get a film off the ground, even of a book as enthralling (and award winning) as Sally Gardner’s classic. At last, the script has been commissioned, and Rook’s Nest is at the helm. ‘Maggot Moon’ tells the story of Standish Treadwell – a remarkable David, facing the most hideous Goliath. ‘It’s a story about friendship,’ says Andy. ‘It’s a wild mixture of dystopia, fantasy and horrible reality, and at its heart are two boys who refuse to be beaten. I’m trying to do it justice – trying to keep the screenplay as real as the book. It’s a privilege to have been chosen to work on it.’
