OMGWACA Is Being Turned Into A Movie

One of the best selling books of 2017 is going to be turned into a movie.

OH MY GOD, WHAT A COMPLETE AISLING started out as a Facebook page, created by long-time friends Emer McLysaght and Sarah Breen.

The debut, hailed as Ireland’s answer to Bridget Jones, claimed the number-one bestselling adult fiction title in the country for 2017.

Now, Element Pictures has announced today that it has acquired the rights to turn it into a film.

Emer and Sarah, who are also onboard to write the screenplay, said that "We’ve known this character for ten years so to be given the opportunity to take her from the pages of our beloved book and transform her into a walking, talking, caring (and judging, let’s be honest) girl in front of a camera is beyond our wildest dreams. We can’t wait to start!”

Element Pictures producer Rory Gilmartin is equally thrilled to be working on the project “We couldn’t be more excited at the thought of working with Emer & Sarah to bring Aisling into cinemas. The huge success of this debut book is a testament to the strength of their writing – so funny and yet so full of heart.”

OH MY GOD, WHAT A COMPLETE AISLING tells the story of 28-year-old Aisling who lives at home in Ballygobbard with her parents and commutes to her good job at PensionsPlus in Dublin.

When a week in Tenerife with boyfriend John doesn’t end with the expected engagement, Aisling calls a halt to things and soon she has surprised herself and everyone else by agreeing to move into a three-bed in Portobello with stylish Sadhbh from HR and her friend, the mysterious Elaine.
