Geminid Press recently announced it has partnered with writer-director Jack Snyder to develop a screenplay for the acclaimed science fiction conspiracy thriller “Truth Insurrected: The Saint Mary Project” (ISBN: 978-0990737100) by Daniel P. Douglas. In the SF novel, readers plunge into a storyline featuring former FBI agent William Harrison who finds himself hot on the trail of a major “extraterrestrial cover-up.”
Douglas’s debut science fiction novel has received its share of critical acclaim. Foreword Reviews recently recognized “Truth Insurrected” as a science fiction finalist in its 17th annual INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards. Winners will be announced in June 2015. Kirkus Reviews described “Truth Insurrected” as “A multigenre espionage tale that’s unquestionably entertaining.”
The Columbia Review of Books & Film highly recommended “Truth Insurrected” and described it as “An excellent science-fiction/conspiracy thriller.” Best Thrillers described the novel as “An engrossing, deftly-crafted UFO conspiracy thriller that is easily one of the most successful tales to emerge out of Roswell alien lore.”
“We are very pleased to partner with Jack Snyder, an award-winning filmmaker who has written, directed, and produced both features and short films,” Geminid Press co-founder, Paul Garver, said. “Jack’s a very talented professional, and given the popularity of the novel’s subject matter, as can be seen in such examples as the pending return of the ‘X-Files’ and a sequel for ‘Independence Day,’ we’re very excited about what the future may hold for a ‘Truth Insurrected’ screenplay.”
The estimated timeframe for completion of the “Truth Insurrected” screenplay is June, 2015. Geminid Press published the science fiction thriller in October, 2014, and it is currently available in Kindle eBook, paperback, and audiobook editions.
