Dream team assembled for the Tiger's Curse movie! Paramount pictures partners with producers Mary Parent and Raphael Kryszek!
I have been getting tons of emails, tweets, and notes from my fans asking about the latest Tiger's Curse news that came out the other day: that Paramount Pictures has optioned the film rights to the book. Well I can tell you officially that this is true, and I am SO thrilled. As you all know from previous posts and discussions, we have been working on this for a while and I couldn't be more happy with the dream team assembled to bring my books to life on screen. I have no doubt that Paramount Pictures along with producers Mary Parent and Raphael Kryszek will make this into a beautiful, amazing film. Thanks from the bottom of my heart to every single one of you who has continued to read my books. Without all of you, this would never have been possible. We are in kind of a top-secret mode right now as the movie develops but I cannot wait to share more news with you as soon as I can!

Announcement from producer Raffi Kryszek on the Facebook Fan Page
Hey TC fans!
I can’t stay online long but I just wanted to say a few words and give as much of an update as I can on the film adaptation. There will even be a little sneak-peak treat at the end.
First off let me just say how grateful we are at Ineffable Pictures that Colleen has given the world the Tiger Saga. Although most people have only read the first book or two, I can tell you first hand that each book only gets better!!!
As for the movie adaptation, all I can say right now is that the development process is well on its way and it’s going to be BIG!!! Unfortunately I can’t say more since we are in the middle of developing elements that have not been finalized. Besides, you guys know you love the suspense.
What I can say is that we completely understand and love all of you, the TC fans, so we will make information available to you as soon as possible. Be sure to follow Colleen on twitter (@ColleenHouck) for the mostup-to-date information about the movie.
It’s also going to be our intention to include the fan base as much as possible in the development of the film, so stay tuned to @ColleenHouck for upcoming polls and surveys where you can provide your input on actors, writers, and filmmakers.
Now before I go I want to leave you with a little treat. Our artists have been hard at work on some top-secret concept art for the film. But now for the first time I’d like to officially unveil one of the pieces of concept art. Just go to our website (www.ineffablepictures.com) and see it on the home page. I hope you all like it.
Now if you haven’t already done so, go purchase Tiger’s Quest!!!!
