ABC Preps Rose Prequel

ABC is developing The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer, a telefilm based on the book of the same name that was released as a prequel tie-in to the network’s hit supernatural miniseries Rose Red, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Written by Ridley Pearson as a first-person account by young Ellen Rimbauer, the diary documents the eerie events in the house built by her husband, oil magnate John Rimbauer, in 1907 and features many of the Rose Red characters.

Lisa Brenner and Steven Brand (The Scorpion King) have been cast to play Ellen and John Rimbauer in the project from the team behind Rose Red, with Craig Baxley back to direct, Mark Carliner to executive produce and Thomas Brodek to produce, the trade paper reported.

Though actually penned by novelist Pearson, the best-selling Diary was marketed as having been written by Rimbauer and edited by Stephen King and Rose Red’s central character, psychology professor Joyce Reardon (Nancy Travis). Pearson wrote the script for the ABC movie. It is not clear at this point if King, writer/executive producer of Rose Red, will be involved in Diary, which co-stars Kate Burton and Brad Greenquist, the trade paper reported.
