The Weinstein Company (TWC) has pounced on worldwide publishing, film and television rights to Bridie Clark's novel I Think She's Got It.

The company has optioned the right to develop and produce film and television versions of Clark's modern retelling of Pygmalion, which transplants the action to Manhattan where a man-about-town takes it upon himself to turn a shy Midwestern girl into a confident socialite.

Weinstein Books president and CEO Rob Weisbach negotiated the deal with Daniel Greenberg at the Levine Greenberg Agency in New York.

'Bridie Clark writes what she knows and does it with style,' Weisbach said. 'In I Think She's Got It, she offers an insider's take on New York's social and fashion circles and wraps it in sharply observed humour and undeniable charm.'

Weinstein Books recently published its inaugural list of titles that include Padma Lakshmi's Tangy Tart Hot & Sweet, Vincent Lam's Bloodletting & Miraculous Cures, Chris Elliott's Into Hot Air as well as two new children's series.
