For the first time ever, Wally Lamb is getting the big screen treatment! Lamb’s bestseller Wishin’ and Hopin’ is being made into a feature film set to shoot in Connecticut this summer.

With a screenplay written by John Doolan, Wishin’ and Hopin’ is a Christmas story set in the 1960s in the fictional town of Three Rivers, Connecticut, and more specifically, St. Aloysius Gonzaga Parochial School. The book follows a young boy, Felix, as he attends Catholic school and learns about life and culture from a Russian student and a substitute teacher, among others.

The film will be directed by Colin Theys. Lamb is on board as an executive producer.
