screenwriter wanted for adaption

Pam Malik sent in the following post for Annapolis MWA members:

My new Indie company is planning to adapt a book into a film. Looking for a scriptwriter new that can be interested in taking a risk with a future payback. We are all doing it on spec, and hope to have a complete product in about a year or so. If interested, I would be interested in talking to the interested parties.

Genre …General audience, quality reading for all ages.

Brief summary…
This is a story of a feral kid who actually lived with the wolves for five years of his early life till a hunter brought him out of the
jungles. A fiction based on true facts.
