A local writer calls it a “dream come true” after learning that her very first novel is being made into a film.
Bridget Canning says it was one thing to have “The Greatest Hits of Wanda Janes” published, but knowing that it will be made into a film takes it to a whole other level.
Canning calls it an “unlikely hero story.”
The novel starts with Wanda learning that she’s lost her job while mulling over her suspicions that her boyfriend might be developing feelings for a mutual friend. On a random trip to the grocery store, she manages to stop a shooter from killing people by knocking him out.
