Ryan Silbert is producing the film adaption of Steven King’s The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon. The film has been optioned by Village Roadshow Pictures.
Originally published in 1999, the book follows 12-year-old Trisha McFarland who strays from the path while she and her recently divorced mother and brother take a hike along a branch of the Appalachian Trail. Lost for days, wandering farther and farther astray, Trisha has only her portable radio for comfort. A huge fan of Tom Gordon, a Boston Red Sox relief pitcher, she listens to baseball games and fantasizes that her hero will save her. Nature isn’t her only adversary, though – something dangerous may be tracking Trisha through the dark woods.
