Alex and Me: The Movie
Saw this in the February 2011 issue of The Ornithological Newsletter:
"ALEX AND ME: THE MOVIE – Hello fellow bird lover! It is my great pleasure to announce the launch of a brand new website offering fans of Alex, the genius African Grey Parrot, a unique opportunity to take part in the motion picture adaptation of the New York Times bestseller “Alex & Me.” The website (URL: http://www.alexandmethemovie.com/) was created by independent filmmakers working with the book’s author, Dr. Irene Pepperberg, to develop a screenplay based on her remarkable true story. We want to promote a film about love and triumph, groundbreaking scientific research, and the journey of one woman to reveal the secrets of avian intelligence to the world. This is your chance to help some young filmmakers make a dream come true and bring the story of Alex to the silver screen. The process of adapting a screenplay from a book requires immense amounts of research and financial resources, and we need your help. For more information, visit the website. If you would like to contact the writing team to request an interview or additional information about the project for a news article, contact Producer Joshua Dinner (EM: firstname.lastname@example.org)."
