"Robert Cort, Paul Hanson, and Andy Tennant have done a fantastic job developing The Secret, together we have put together a team of talented filmmakers and actors." Matthew George.

Joe Gelchion said: "Matthew and Robert's taste in film closely aligns with the type of stories I want to tell. We are excited to partner on The Secret as well as other projects down the line. People have wanted to turn this powerful book into a film for a long time. It took this team, led by Andy Tennant, to finally crack the story and transform this book, that spent 192 consecutive weeks on the New York Times best-seller list, into the wonderful screenplay that we are about to make. We want to tell stories that inspire and ones that carry a message of hope"

Robert Katz said: "Andy's sensibility and passion for telling real stories, grounded in humanity, is a perfect fit for this film.  It's a great inaugural project for us."

Neil Sacker negotiated the deal and served as outside counsel through Skadden Arps.
