Sydney, October 1st, 2008: Enchanter has optioned Marianne De Pierres & Lynne Jamneck’s science fiction script Stalking Daylight, it was announced by Enchanter CEO Matt Carter.
Stalking Daylight tells the story of Dresher, a bright young gaming talent who is faced with some tough choices when her father contracts neuro-transmitter disease.
