‘Whiskey When We’re Dry’ by Jesse Harney optioned by Amanda Silver & Rick Jaffa

Described by the publisher as a “gritty, lyrical epic,” the story, set in 1885, centers on just-orphaned 17-year-old Jesse Harney, who disguises herself as a boy and sets out to find her outlaw brother Noah. Along the way, Jesse, a talented shooter and rider, finds herself in the employ of the territorial governor, whose militia is hunting for her brother — dead or alive. Whiskey is narrated in Jesse’s voice as she grapples with her brother’s outlaw identity and her own coming of age.

Jaffa and Silver are best known for rebooting the Planet of the Apes. They wrote Rise of the Planet of the Apes, co-wrote Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and have been producers on all three installments of the latest iteration of the popular franchise.

Silver and Jaffa are repped by WME and Ken Richman at Hansen Jacobson. Larison is repped by WME and The Gernert Company. ‘
