Walker George Films is delighted to announce that Stephen Walker’s New York Times bestseller Shockwave: Countdown to Hiroshima has been republished in a new edition in the United Kingdom by HarperCollins (July 2020) for the 75th anniversary of the world’s first atomic bomb. For more information please go to harpercollins.co.uk   Available in paperback or Kindle from Amazon.co.uk

Meanwhile Shockwave is being developed as a major feature film by the UK’s leading film production company, Working Title Films. The screenplay is by legendary British playwright Tom Stoppard and the movie will be directed by Cary Fukunaga who directed the latest James Bond movie No Time to Die.

Screenwriter Tom Edge (who scripted the Judy Garland biopic Judy and co-scripted the hit Netflix series The Crown) is currently writing the final draft of a dramatized feature film based on A Boy Called Alex, our triple BAFTA-nominated 2008 documentary about the brilliant teenage musical prodigy, Alex Stobbs, who suffers from the incurable disease cystic fibrosis. The new feature film will be co-produced with Walker George Films and DNA Films for Film 4.
