Caletti's girls go to movies


Paul Allen's Vulcan Prods. is partnering with Infinity Features to co-produce five young adult novels by Simon & Schuster author Deb Caletti as a series of features.

The films, to be produced under the Nine Mile Falls series banner, include adaptations of the National Book Award finalist "Honey, Baby, Sweetheart," "The Queen of Everything," "Wild Roses," "The Nature of Jade" and "The Fortunes of Indigo Sky." Each one tells the stories of girls ages 16-18 with provocative story lines.

Rob Merilees is producing for Infinity ("Capote"). Allen, Jody Patton and Richard Hutton are executive producing and Michael Caldwell is producing on behalf of Vulcan ("Far From Heaven"). (partialdiff)
