As hard as this is to believe, it's been half a decade since I signed the movie option for The Hunters. During the first few years, there was a lot of forward momentum with the project―including an incredible cast and a massive marketing deal with Nissan. But as time went on, I started to have my doubts about the film. The budget kept getting smaller and smaller, and the script kept getting further and further away from the book. Eventually it reached a point where it wasn't my story or my characters anymore.

At the end of the five-year deal, the producers wanted to extend the agreement, but after several sleepless nights, I decided to turn them down. As tough as that was to do, I know it was the right decision.

Believe it or not, I'm actually excited about this development. Now that I have the rights back, my agents are free to shop for a better deal, and so far there has been a lot of interest. That said, I'm not in any rush to sign a new agreement. Now that I've seen the good and bad of Hollywood, I'm going to patiently wait until I find the right studio and/or production team to work with before I sign my next movie option.
