Producer Paula Mazur
Hollywood meets Guernsey
Hollywood could pay a visit to Guernsey if a popular book set on the island is made into a film. We caught up with producer Paula Mazur and Commerce and Employment's Tony Dawson to find out more.
In 2008 BBC Guernsey brought you the news that a book set in the island could be made into a major Hollywood Film. The book, entitled the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, was on the New York Times' bestseller list for 36 weeks.
Hollywood producer Paula Mazur bought the rights to the film and said she was very excited about the prospect of the book being picked up by a major studio. As of May 2009 it looked like a talented writer had been secured for the adaptation, but details had yet to be unveiled.
BBC Guernsey's Aletta Gardner caught up with Paula to find out about the progress so far. She also spoke to Tony Dawson, Marketing Manager at the Commerce and Employment Department.
Tony was right behind the project stating that: "It's publicity, in the nicest respect, you can't buy, and of course, we would give whatever help we could here on the ground should a production company actually come here to film."
