Ryan-Jaroncyk-1COLUMBUS—Eleven One Productions has acquired the short film script “Cynisca Reborn,” from Columbus-based screenwriter Ryan Jaroncyk, who based the inspirational script off his grandmother, Virginia Sterkel, who won an Olympic gold medal in bowling at the senior Olympics.

“I witnessed firsthand how inspiring my Grandma was to so many people during her last several years of life,” said Jaroncyk of why he wrote the screenplay.

Jaroncyk said he felt like he owed it to his late mother, “to help her finish the job she had started before she died in a tragic accident.”

“I thought the story might give people hope, no matter their difficulties or limitations in life,” he said, adding, “I played a fairly significant role in helping take care of my late paternal and maternal grandmothers.”

Jaroncyk, who’s written or co-written around six or so screenplays, said he’s looking forward to seeing his grandmother’s life come to life on screen and learning the production process.

“I’m kind of shocked this is happening. So much of screenwriting is facing and dealing with rejection,” said Jaroncyk. “But I am very excited and extremely grateful to Steph (Greegor, Producer) for taking a shot on this story. I know it’s in good hands.”

Production is set for the spring of 2020. Learn more here.
