Katherine Anne is currently writing two new features, ONWARD set in present-day New York City is an ode to Nora Ephron's romantic comedies of thirty years ago with a decidedly edgier, modern-day take. Its theme centres on the plight of the invisible middle-aged woman in business and romance today.
She is also in the research phase of writing PICASSO'S GHOST, a magical-reality piece about a relationship between the great misogynist painter and the only woman he couldn't seduce. It explores themes of self-esteem, victim culture and redemption.
Katherine Anne's future projects include the three features, ROMANCING ANTONIO is a romantic comedy of errors set in Europe. SOULBOUND is a fantasy/action/adventure set in China, its story is a ride from the dawn of civilization through to today. It's an idea that was born in Cannes during a conversation between a German producer in China and Katherine Anne which, like much of our work, fits TimeStory's international perspective. Closer to home, ROADKILL is a box thriller set in Newfoundland featuring a funeral, family secrets and a long-dormant serial killer ready to strike again if his identity isn't uncovered in time.
What to do when your story is bigger than the screen? One of Katherine Anne's favourite teachers and mentors, Corey Mandell says, novelize it first. Hence Katherine Anne's passion project, NEVERCHILD, a drama centred on a Metis girl born at a residential school in rural Ontario in 1950. A prodigy, she is favoured by the headmaster, a brutal priest until she escapes him and his concentration camp school at the age of twelve. With the help of a teenage outsider, she finds her way to New York City and grows up into a new identity and life. She forgets her past and travels further, attaining stardom even as her former tormentor tracks her down to enforce penance before she rises beyond his reach.
