Author Michael Bunker Signs Movie Deal for Sci-Fi Thriller ‘Pennsylvania’

November 8th, 2015 by Eamon Ambrose Comments


As announced in Variety Magazine yesterday, USA Today bestselling author Michael Bunker has inked a deal with Jorgensen Pictures for his self-published sci-fi novel ‘Pennsylvania”

The novel follows the exploits of young Amishman Jed Troyer, as he embarks on a trip to a new world as a colonist hoping to carve out a new life as a simple farmer as part of an emigration program, but once he arrives things start to awry, making Troyer an unwilling pawn in a dangerous war.

Bunker himself, who lives off-grid in a plain community in Texas is on screenwriting duties and the movie will be produced by Stacy Jorgensen.

It’ll be interesting to see how this adaptation pans out, as the novel, which could best be described as Total Recall-meets-Witness has gained legions of fans since its release and even spawned several spin-off novels and an anthology from other authors, as well as a prequel of sorts, Brother, Frankenstein, released this year.
