Speaking about the upcoming film, Rosie said: "The movie adaptation of the book is going into pre-production later this year with filming set for 2019. Casting will be underway soon and I can’t wait to see who gets the roles of Mona Armstrong and Amber Green." She added some thoughts on who she would like to see cast in the movie, explaining: "I'm a real fan of Lily Collins and could see her as Amber. Perhaps a Hollywood stalwart for Mona - time will tell. It really is a thrill to see my book brought to life like this." The mum-of-two also opened up about her third book, explaining: "When I get a spare moment, I’m currently working on a third novel around the themes of motherhood, friendship and relationships - it’s more baby wipes than high fashion, which perfectly encapsulates the mix of my life right now too!"
