Filmmaker Angela Robinson (Professor Marston and the Wonder Women) is partnering with award-winning cartoonist Terry Moore to adapt his long-runningÂ graphic novelÂ Strangers in ParadiseÂ for film, it was announced today.
Strangers in ParadiseÂ followsÂ Katchoo,Â a beautiful young woman living a quiet life with everything going for her. She’s smart, independent and very much in love with her best friend, Francine. ThenÂ KatchooÂ meets David, a gentle but persistent young man who is determined to winÂ Katchoo’sÂ heart. The resulting love triangle is a touching comedy of romantic errors untilÂ Katchoo’sÂ former employer comes looking for her and $850,000 in missing mob money. As her idyllic life begins to fall apart,Â KatchooÂ discovers no one can be trusted and that the past she thought she left behind now threatens to destroy her and everything she loves, including Francine.
Robinsonâs Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, an origin story of the man who created Wonder Woman and the women who inspired the character starring Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, and Bella Heathcote, is premieringÂ at the 2017Â Toronto International Film Festival. The film, which Robinson bothÂ wrote and directed, will be released by Annapurna on October 13.
Said Angela Robinson of the new project,Â âIâve been wanting to adaptÂ Strangers in ParadiseÂ for over a decade, since the first time I read it and couldnât put it down. Terry Moore writes real female characters with such breathtaking sensitivity.Â WithÂ Strangers inÂ ParadiseÂ he pulls off the nearly impossible â a sexy, stylish crime story with tons of heart.Â I look forward to our collaboration!â
âAngela and I have known each other for years and I greatly admire her creative vision. From Day One our common goal was to bringÂ Strangers in ParadiseÂ to the screen. Itâs a complex story that took years to write and Angela gets it on every level. I canât wait to get started!â said Terry Moore.
