Twelve Nights Optioned as Independent Romantic Comedy Feature Film! #TBSU

Wow! What a day! This morning we finalized the deal, and Twelve Nights is now officially optioned as a feature length romantic comedy film!

Producer T. N. Mohan is best known for his film Hanged on a Twisted Cross, "a gripping documentary, narrated by Ed Asner, that captures the life, times, and thought of theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer." Eight feature films directed and/or produced by Mohan are displayed on his Amazon page.

Mohan has been teaching for the last three years, and has chosen Twelve Nights as the vehicle to jump start his return to active film making.

Here are Mohan's words on why he selected Twelve Nights.

I've had my eye on Twelve Nights since it was originally published. When I found it again on Amazon, I was thrilled. Perfect project, perfect timing for me. I see the movie as Shakespeare meets Bollywood meets Valentine's Day.  The novel is mainly in dialogue, which makes it easier to translate to the screen. The story is lively and the characters are well-developed. As Carole Remy says, Twelve Nights is a sexy fun romance. For our film, we're taking out the graphic part, but the movie is going to be a solid hour and a half of sexy fun.

An International Movie!

The production of Twelve Nights (BTW the title may change) will be truly an international effort. The screenwriter and director will probably be Canadian. Then again, Jimmy's home location may move to Scotland! I could see him as Scottish, couldn't you? Who knows? The movie could be set in Toronto or Montreal, or even London, Frankfurt, New York, or Madrid! As you can see from his previous movies, Mohan has produced and directed all over North America and Europe. What an adventure!

Yesterday was a day of amazing, emotional, super-charged positive energy. The Law of Attraction says that you attract more of what you already have, and boy, has that proven true today! I am filled to the brim with gratitude, and you can imagine how eager I am for tomorrow!

Join us for a conversation in the comments. Who do you see as Jimmy and Richard? How do you imagine them? Who should play Aggie and Angela? One actress or two? What about Danny, and Monica? So many actors! So many choices! Names, people, names! 

If you have questions, suggestions, or comments for T. N. Mohan, he'll be stopping by to chat too. Take advantage of this opportunity to ask a movie producer all the behind the scenes questions you've been curious about for years!

It's a party! Join the happy dance!

Two great blogs, presented here in the grand tradition of The Blog Scratchers' Union! #TBSU 


  1. That's so exciting Carole! Congratulations! :-)

    If it's filmed in Toronto, my sister might end up working on it... wouldn't that be funny? She's lives there and has done PA work for a number of films that have been shot in the city.

    I'm doing a happy dance for you!!! ((hugs))

    1. Hi Nathalie,

      That would be fun if it was in Toronto! Who knows? Anything's possible at this point!

      I'm still happy dancing too! Hugs!


  2. Wow, MC, congrats! That is wonderful. We predicted great things to come and this is the universe at work right here! More proof to me! There you go! I have not read the book, I hope to when I have time, but I am sure the cast will be awesome! I love stuff shot in Toronto. Some of my favorite shows were shot there so it will all go well!

    I actually came here to ask you another question, and found this so maybe this is more if a sign to the answer of my question. Haha!

    1. Hi A!

      Thanks! The Universe does gives us bountiful gifts! Go abundance! You can download Twelve Nights free from Amazon on Monday through Thursday if you want.

      If your question was the one you asked on the Global post, I just responded. If not, ask away.

      Many hugs,
