After plenty of persistence and patience, Caitlin McCarthy of Worcester, a school teacher by day and a screenplay writer by night, is going to see her “passion project” come to life.
McCarthy’s screenplay “Wonder Drug” will be made into a movie by Rhino Films, the acclaimed independent film company, with Stephen Nemeth the producer and Tom Gilroy directing. Shooting may begin in February, Nemeth said.
“Wonder Drug” is one of several screenplays that McCarthy, who teaches English at Worcester Technical High School, has written and won awards for. It will be the first to generate the words “Lights, camera, action.”
