New Line Cinema to adapt Maureen Johnson’s 13 LITTLE BLUE ENVELOPES to film
According to the Tracking Board, Maureen Johnson’s 13 Little Blue Envelopes is being developed into film by New Line Cinema in conjunction with Alloy Entertainment.
The story follows a seventeen-year-old girl named Ginny on a coming-of-age adventure. After her Aunt passes away, Ginny realizes that she’s been left with thirteen envelopes containing money and instructions for a journey for her to take. The trip takes her around the world, where she discovers various cultures, and most importantly, herself.
There is a sequel titled The Last Little Blue Envelope, although there’s still a lot get through first, including the actual production and release, before any determination can be made for a sequel movie to be made. The first focus is on developing this into a final product.
I can’t say if it will ever actually HAPPEN, but something has STARTED.
