Says BIZ, Wake is the first of three novels written by McMann about a 17-year-old girl named Janie with the unwanted ability to become sucked into people’s dreams. When she gets pulled into a terrible nightmare, Janie dangerously goes from mere witness to participant.
Paramount and MTV Films are taking rights to the entire book series with a view to a franchise.
Cyrus’ ultimate commitment to Wake rests on the finished script.
