Rocker Jon Bon Jovi is set to produce a film adaptation of Jessica Blank's upcoming book "Almost Home" with his music managers.
Last seen on the big screen in 2005's "Cry Wolf", rocker Jon Bon Jovi is making his way back to the film business, only this time as a producer instead of a star, Variety has revealed.
Thereby marking his first venture behind the camera, the Perth Amboy, New Jersey native will produce a new drama feature entitled "Almost Home" alongside his music managers Jack Rovner and Ken Levitan. Pic turns out to be a movie adaptation of Jessica Blank's fiction debut of the same name slated to hit stores October 23 under Disney's Hyperion Books for Children.
Story revolves around a group of homeless teens in Los Angeles struggling to find themselves. Blank and her husband, Erik Jensen, reportedly have already begun working together on the screenplay for the project. The couple previously teamed on the play "The Exonerated", which was later turned into a made-for-TV feature, and recently appeared in ESPN's series "The Bronx Is Burning."
