Actor/producer Morgan Freeman and REVELATIONS ENTERTAINMENT have optioned, "The Black Panthers: A Story of Race, War, and Courage. The 761st Tank Battalion in World War II," for a feature film. The project has interested Mr. Freeman for some time and he has finally found his right book. Gina M. DiNicolo, an Author Salon and New York Pitch Conference alum, authored the work. And how did this come about?
In 2012, she had the "misfortune" to ride the rails to New York with conference organizer Michael Neff. He took interest in her work, sat horrified at what she'd planned to pitch, and insisted that she conceive and pitch the book on the 761st, THE FIRST BLACK TANK UNIT IN COMBAT.
Miss DiNicolo is now working on her next project - a narrative nonfiction on a bloody World War I battle.
Viva Gina! We love you!
