Wonderland Sound and Vision has launched development on a biopic about Shel Silverstein, the prolific children’s book author, cartoonist and lyricist.
Wonderland principals McG and Mary Viola are producing with Sean Sorensen and Motion Theory’s Mathew Cullen. Writing partners Chris Shafer and Paul Vicknair are adapting “A Boy Named Shel: The Life and Times of Shel Silverstein” by Lisa Rogak.
Wonderland optioned the material and will be funding development. Wonderland’s Nathan Stadler will oversee the project.
