Vega Jane Books in Movies/TV:
Unfortunately none of the David Baldacci Vega Jane books have made it to the big screen yet. The Finisher was optioned by Sony Pictures in 2013 with Matt Tolmach (The Amazing Spider-Man) attached to produce. The book was actually optioned by Sony before the book was ever released for public consumption so that tells you the kind of buzz that was surrounding it. David Baldacci is rumored to have written a script for the film as well. It is unknown the current stage of production, but this seems to be a case of the “Hunger Games” effect. In that every Young Adult science-fiction story out there was being optioned for a time and it remains to be seen if it will ever actually be made. Fingers crossed though.
However, some of his novels have been adapted to movies and series which shows how much influence his books have amassed over the years. Below are some of his books that have been made into movies or series.

– The 2013 film entitled Wish You Well, that starred Josh Lucas, Mackenzie Foy and Ellen Burstyn.
