Great news! Margaret Riseley has optioned her 2017 PAGE Awards feature finalist WOUNDED to Mark Castaldo, Destiny Pictures.

“Margaret has written a strong genre piece,” Castaldo said, known for My Run and The Perfect Nanny. “It’s a commercial action/thriller that delivers on action and thrills without sacrificing strong character work that keeps us engaged to care. WOUNDED is a visceral film with a ticking clock, a heart and something to say.”

Castaldo is currently looking to bring on a director and seeking the right location partner to shoot most of the script in a Philippines locale.

Congrats, Margie! We’re so excited to see one of our Screenwriters Beat panelists connect with a successful producer!
