Gunpowder & Sky And Walden Media To Adapt Children’s Novel ‘Ms. Bixby’s Last Day’

  • Deadline
Gunpowder & Sky has acquired the rights to John David Anderson’s popular children’s novel Ms. Bixby’s Last Day. The studio will partner with Walden Media to adapt the book into the feature film with Linsey Stewart and Dane Clark writing the screenplay.

The story follows the heartwarming story of the last day of the titular Ms. Bixby, a one-of-a-kind teacher who makes students feel like school is somehow worthwhile. When she unexpectedly announces that she won’t be able to finish the school year due to illness, her students Topher, Brand, and Steve come up with a risky plan—more of a quest, really—to give Ms. Bixby a day she deserves.

“I don’t have a sentimental bone in my body, yet we all remember teachers – who have had an impact on us,” said Van Toffler, CEO, Gunpowder & Sky.
