HIDEOUS MEN Film Slated for 9/25

A film adaptation of David Foster Wallace’s Brief Interviews With Hideous Men has been picked up for distribution in American theaters on September 25 by IFC. Click here for a crisper trailer than the one below.

The film, which marks TV actor John Krasinski’s directorial debut, received positive early reviews when it debuted at the Sundance Festival earlier this year, including this one from filmschoolrejects.com:

 We know him as Jim from The Office, but with Brief Interviews it is clear that Krasinski has a future in the director’s chair. Working with an immensely difficult piece of source material, the book by the same name by the late David Foster Wallace, Krasinski has delivered a clever and inventive adaptation that should play well with both fans of the book and the intellectually inclined moviegoer (read: those of us who like those “talky” movies).

No word yet on whether there will be a movie tie-in edition, but we’ll keep you posted.
