Ann Peacock To Adapt ‘The Nightingale’ For TriStar  |  Deadline  |  June 23, 2015
EXCLUSIVE: Ann Peacock (Chronicle Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe) has just closed a deal to to adapt The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah for Elizabeth Cantillon (Concussion) to produce at TriStar, which had previously optioned the title. The Nightingale is an epic family drama about two sisters living in France during WWII and follows them as one becomes a prisoner in her own home and the other fights for the resistance. It was published in February of this year by St. Martin’s Press.

The author Hannah, who is a former lawyer, has written 21 novels. Her other novel Home Front was optioned by Chris Columbus’ 1492 Films for the filmmaker to write, produce, and direct. That novel and Night Road both have the distinction of being on the NY Times bestseller’s list at the same time. The Nightingale has spent almost 20 weeks on the New York Times best-seller list and is on a number of other best-seller lists as well.

Peacock, whose other credits include The First Grader and Nights In Rodanthe, is no stranger to epic family dramas and love stories. She has also cut a swath in TV with Alice Hoffman’s Dovekeepers for Mark Burnett and CBS and Ken Follett’s Fall Of Giants for Michael Deluca and ABC.

Cantillon’s credits include the cult comedy Galaxy Quest and the Banger Sisters.

Peacock is repped by CAA, Principato-Young Entertainment and attorney Don Steele.
