Waterside Press is proud to announce that Justin Rollins book The Lost Boyz: A Dark Side of Graffiti (first published in 2011) has been optioned by No Dog Films who are now working with the author on his life story. This is the same book that has become required reading for students at Birmingham City University and from 2018 at Aberdeen University. Further announcements will be made in due course.
A number of other Waterside titles are currently at various stages of negotiation/discussion for film rights, including a major project for a series based on Satish Sekars book The Cardiff Five: Innocent Beyond Any Doubt, the second edition of which was published in 2018.
David Wilsons Waterside Press book Mary Ann Cotton was used as the basis of ITVs Dark Angel starring Joanne Froggatt in 2017.
