Collins said in a statement, "I am thrilled to be bringing Lucky Santangelo to the bigscreen. She’s a kick-ass female, and we need more of those!"
This will not be the first screenplay by Jackie Collins. She also has screenwriting credits on The Stud, The World Is Full of Married Men, Yesterday's Hero and several teleplays.
