The Lost Swimmer (Ann Turner) has been optioned by Film Art Media Pty Ltd to be made into a film.  Ann Turner will write the screenplay and co-produce the film based on her critically acclaimed first novel published by Simon and Schuster in 2015.

“Ann Turner’s debut novel has all the hallmarks for a brilliant suspense thriller and we are delighted to be working with her to adapt The Lost Swimmer into a film with international audience appeal,” said producer Sue Maslin.

Ann and Sue have previously worked together on Irresistible starring Susan Sarandon, Sam Neill and Emily Blunt – where Sue was executive producer and Ann was writer/director. “It’s a real coup to have Sue come on board, as she is such a talented and highly experienced producer,” said Ann.
