The Illuminated Film Company (Illuminated Films) is to produce adventure story NOT THE END OF THE WORLD. Piet Kroon (SHREK 2, CHRISTMAS CAROL: THE MOVIE) will direct the film which he adapted from Geraldine McCaughrean’s novel of the same name.
Currently at the pre-production stage, the film is set on board Noah’s Ark and follows Noah’s youngest daughter Timna, as she fights for survival along with her family.
Kroon said of the story: “Geraldine wrote an unflinching, wickedly funny and intriguing book, brimming with hope. The movie will only bring out those qualities and more. Humanity and blind faith collide; we are not pulling punches in this gritty tale.”
Illuminated Films’ previous projects include T.R.A.N.S.I.T, WAR GAME and CHRISTMAS CAROL: THE MOVIE.
