Coming to a Big Screen Near You: The Queen of Sky

I was really excited receiving an email from Ellen Simonetti earlier this month. Remember my interview with her and my book review of The Diary of a Dysfunctional Flight Attendant: The Queen of Sky Blog? As a refresher, Simonetti is the quirky flight attendant who was fired for blogging.

Here's the big news, Hiltz Squared Media Group optioned the rights to Simonetti's semi-autobiographical novel and the Queen of Sky is commissioned to write the screenplay, anticipated to be a 90-minute comedy. And, the public can follow and interact with her at QueenofScreen.com, a blog Simonetti's maintaining as she writes the screenplay. It'll contain polls, scene sneak peeks, and spoilers.

So what's Simonetti been doing lately? She's studying TV/Radio/Film at the University of Texas at Austin.

After reading the book, I can definitely see Drew Barrymore playing the lead while Simonetti prefers either Katherine Heigl or Alicia Silverstone. Who do you think should play the quirky flight attendant? Visit QueenofScreen.com to cast your vote and keep tabs on the progress of the flick.
