Netflix Is Turning This Sweet Online Exchange Into A Movie

According to Variety, Netflix is in the early stages of development on a new movie called “The Thanksgiving Text,” which will retell the real-life events of the happy accident. No cast members for the upcoming project have been announced, but the streaming platform is already lining up behind-the-scenes crew members. Producers on the project include Lawrence Mott, Robert Teitel, and George Tillman, Jr., while Abdul Williams is taking on script-writing duties. 

Also per Variety, Hinton and Dench released a joint statement that reads as follows:

“We are excited to share our story with the world. We hope it inspires more people to reach out and make connections that they wouldn’t ordinarily make. We are so blessed to find a genuine friendship brought together by God from a mistaken text message.”

In a tweet posted to the same Twitter account that first brought the story to the world, Hinton said, “I am very excited to announce our new partnership with Netflix. We thank every single one of you for your love and support in our journey the last 6 years. We can’t wait to tell our story on the big screen!”

Who knows? Next year, we might all have to update our lists of favorite Thanksgiving movies.
