Christopher Monger to adapt best-selling novel ORPHAN TRAIN
Christopher Monger is set to adapt Christina Baker Kline’s best-selling novel ORPHAN TRAIN for Broad Green Pictures.
ORPHAN TRAIN, set in modern day Maine, weaves together the stories of a 91-year-old Irish immigrant who as a child was shipped from New York City to Minnesota on an orphan train, and a 17-year-old who is on the verge of aging out of the foster care system. The pair develop an unlikely friendship when the teenager is hired to help clean out the older woman’s attic.
Christopher’s previous credits include Emmy Award-winning TEMPLE GRANDIN starring Claire Danes.
