Filmmaker Angela Robinson (Professor Marston and the Wonder Women) is partnering with award-winning cartoonist Terry Moore to adapt his long-running graphic novel Strangers in Paradise for film, it was announced today.

Strangers in Paradise follows Katchoo, 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. Then Katchoo meets David, a gentle but persistent young man who is determined to win Katchoo’s heart. The resulting love triangle is a touching comedy of romantic errors until Katchoo’s former employer comes looking for her and $850,000 in missing mob money. As her idyllic life begins to fall apart, Katchoo 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.

Robinson’s 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 premiering at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival. The film, which Robinson both wrote and directed, will be released by Annapurna on October 13.

Said Angela Robinson of the new project, “I’ve been wanting to adapt Strangers in Paradise for over a decade, since the first time I read it and couldn’t put it down. Terry Moore writes real female characters with such breathtaking sensitivity.  With Strangers in Paradise he pulls off the nearly impossible — a sexy, stylish crime story with tons of heart.  I look forward to our collaboration!”

“Angela and I have known each other for years and I greatly admire her creative vision. From Day One our common goal was to bring Strangers in Paradise to the screen. It’s a complex story that took years to write and Angela gets it on every level. I can’t wait to get started!” said Terry Moore.

Graphic novelist Terry Moore is the Eisner Award winning creator of the Strangers in Paradise series. His horror series, Rachel Rising, was nominated for a 2012 Bram Stoker Award in the Superior Achievement in a Graphic Novel category by the Horror Writers Association.
