THE SANDCASTLE EMPIRE movie to be produced by Leonardo DiCaprio


Paramount bought the rights to The Sandcastle Empire by Kayla Olson. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Appian Way’s Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson will produce The Sandcastle Empire movie.

It’s 2049 in The Sandcastle Empire, and the Earth is at a breaking point due to climate change. The Wolfpack overthrows the government and takes control – but it can all be brought down by a girl named Eden, who escapes a Wolfpack labor camp.

The Sandcastle Empire has been sold to a publisher, though the details have yet to be announced.

[EDIT] We originally stated that The Sandcastle Empire was still on submission; the manuscript has been bought by a publisher, though the details have yet to be revealed. Our apologies – and thanks for correcting us, Kayla!

  1. Hey hey!! Thanks so much for this post! Quick correction to the above—TSE isn’t on sub right now, and it has been purchased by a publisher, we just have to be vague about the details until an official announcement goes up! Hopefully that will happen soon, because I’m *SO* eager to shout about it! 🙂 🙂
