UPDATE 14/02: You learned it first at RMS, the name of this project is now official! In a recent interview, Rose McIver announced “I’m coming home for two and a half months to do a film called Daffodils.”
just announced it, she is in Wellington to work for the great New Zealander director David Stubbs
. According to my research, everything leads me to believe that she would work on his adaptation project of kiwi stage musical 'DAFFODILS
- On Dec. 2017, Rose shared on twitter that her next project would be a musical movie. "Hey friends. Guess what I’m doing next, a musical movie! More to come!"
- David is currently attached to two feature films in KHF Media's slate, and is developing the big screen adaptation of Rochelle Bright's acclaimed stage show "Daffodils" - a drama with songs..
What we already know about it?
Bullet Heart Club, one of New Zealand’s newest independent theatre companies, have reported that their debut stage show Daffodils (inspired by true events) is set to be developed into a feature film.
Bullet Heart Club will adapt the story in collaboration with Emmy award-winning production company KHF Media after successfully receiving early development assistance from the New Zealand Film Commission.
Daffodils’ playwright Rochelle Bright and music collaborator LIPS (Stephanie Brown & Fen Ikner) have signed on to write the screenplay with film director/producer David Stubbs (KHF Media) set to direct.
The team will begin working on the script early March 2016.
What is 'Daffodils' about?
This is far more than boy meets girl. Rose was 16. Eric, 18. He was a teddy boy, she was a farm girl. They met at the lake by the daffodils. Same place Eric’s parents met 20 years earlier. Fate? Perhaps.
