Hope Stout's Story Is Closer To Becoming A Movie
CHARLOTTE, N.C.-- The story of a young girl with a remarkable last wish is close to becoming a major movie.
Hope Stout, who battled bone cancer back in 2003, inspired the community when she told the Make A Wish Foundation that she only wanted other kids to have their wish granted. Her wish came true when the Charlotte community raised over $1 million at a gala in her honor.
Hope’s parents teamed up with Academy Award winning writers in 2010 and have been trying to raise enough money to make the movie ever since. They are now close to reaching their goal.
The Stouts say they expect a first draft of the screenplay in the next few weeks.
