Nobody Nowhere – Film News

Interesting times at the moment!

Donna has some good news about the film rights for her best-selling autobiography Nobody Nowhere.

I encountered a wonderful, funny, fountain named Beverly Nero, and our email conversation turned to film writes and the fact that Nobody Nowhere was once again up for option. Bev picked up the option, and supported my belief I might actually be able to write this. Just as Nobody Nowhere was written in 4 weeks, so was my first draft of the screenplay. The book went on to become an international best seller.

The film is now in development, with a target date of May 2006 to begin filming. The movie will be filmed in the UK, throughout England and Wales, over to greater Europe and tell the Australian side of the story from Donna’s perspective.

Believe me, those 4 weeks were hectic and she’s done the first edit on the script too now!

  1. Hello Chris Samuel,

    What is your film about? I work with autistic children in Los Angeles and was referred to this web page by a friend. I am interested in possibly shooting a film about autistic children and how the arts can help integrate them into society.

  2. I have recently picked up the book “Nobody nowhere” from the psychology section at the book store. It was the only one that grabbed my attention for a psychology class project, for personal and educational reasons. I have so far gotten through half of it and had to look around on the web to see if there’s a movie on it, since it is such a great book.

  3. Dear Chris.
    I recently have discovered that Nobody Nowhere have been picked up by Jeffrey Lurie and Pilny Porter ( as a producers). is that true? if so that is absollutely fantastic. Do you know if they have cast all the characters yet? I am writing story about Donna to a magazine here in Czech, I would also lov eto contact the production company for the movie to be ad in the story. and I can’t find any contacts for them online. I would love some help.
