McKenna is currently adapting the Royden Lepp graphic novel Rust for Fox, which also has Kinberg and Archaia as her allies. Her work on the Annie script at Sony landed Will Gluck to direct and McKenna also originated the Cinderella script that Ken Branagh will direct in the fall for a March 2015 release. The scribe’s other major credits are the David Frankel-directed The Devil Wears Prada that starred Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway, and the Roger Michell-directed Morning Glory and 27 Dresses, as well as the Doug McGrath-directed I Don’t Know How She Does It and We Bought A Zoo with Cameron Crowe. She’s repped by CAA.
