ScreenwritingU Alum Margaret Riseley (ProSeries 21, MSC 4) has been hired by Producer Mark Castaldo of Destiny Pictures to rewrite a screenplay based on the book “Chasing Victory” by Joshua Shifrin. The project is currently in development.
“Already familiar with Margaret’s screenwriting and professional work ethic, I knew after introducing her to the book and discussing the approach, we had the right person for this,” said Castaldo.
Mark Castaldo previously optioned Margaret’s screenplay WOUNDED, a PAGE Awards finalist.
Preceding this success, Margaret was hired by Helen Morrison, of Bent3Land Productions, to write the pilot and bible for TV drama series THE RAINMAKER, which was development-funded by Screen Queensland.
Margaret is represented by talent agent Rick Raftos.
This is fantastic news, Margaret!
