Warner Bros. Worldwide Tv Manufacturing Australia, in partnership with Speech & Drama Footage, has secured the unique worldwide rights to develop the ballad “How one can Make Gravy” right into a Christmas movie.
Written by the Australian singer-songwriter Paul Kelly, “How one can Make Gravy” tells the story of a prisoner named Joe who writes a letter to his brother Dan about his longing to be with household at Christmas. Initially launched in 1996, the track’s lyrics and story will likely be tailored right into a function movie 26 years later.
Kelly stated: “Dan and Joe and Rita and Angus and Dolly and all of the others have been caught inside that track so lengthy, I’m glad they’re going to get an opportunity to stay life a unique manner!”
Michael Brooks, managing director of Warner Bros. Worldwide Tv Manufacturing Australia, stated: “In Australia, December 21 is named Gravy Day. Few songs have risen to cult standing and secured a date on the festive calendar, which is why Paul Kelly’s “How one can Make Gravy” is so particular. It’s a privilege to be given the chance, alongside our companions Megan and Nick at Speech & Drama, to unravel the thriller and that means captured in Paul’s now-iconic lyrics and produce this unimaginable story to the display screen.”
Speech&Drama Footage’ Nick Waterman and Megan Washington stated: “Paul’s stunning track is the proper recipe for a function movie. Its characters are already beloved by many who’ve imagined the story behind Joe’s letter themselves—there’s a lot to be discovered within the house between what he should be feeling in jail at Christmas and what he writes in his letter to his brother. This track holds a particular place in our hearts. It’s an honor to carry it to life.”
