Author Christopher Knight is no stranger to spooky stories. Children know him worldwide as Jonathan Rand, author of “American Chiller” and “Michigan Chiller” series. His books have sold over five million worldwide. Many children credit Jonathan Rand with inflicting them with their love of reading. As these children continue to grow into adults many can now enjoy the transition to the adult-targeted books and movies. Collective Development Inc. has an on-going deal with Misery Bay Films to develop these properties into feature films/and or TV series.
“Bestseller” recently locked picture meaning the visual cut of the film is done. Now the film will undergo graphic work, color correction, sound design and music.

Dennis has worked on dozens of films in all genres and has a strong reputation for his originality and quality. “Bestseller” is on track for an end-of-the-year premiere before moving into theatrical show dates starting 1st quarter of 2015.
