"I am excited to hear that Sam Strong will return to direct Tim McGarry’s adaptation of the novel," she said.
"I congratulate Amanda Jolly and her team for making this exciting collaboration happen. I also extend my congratulations to Mr Dalton on his success with this book and the future adaptation of it.
