Lost in Production

You just never know where you’re going to find useful book information. February’s W Magazine examines several titles that have been in “Literary Purgatory.” These are titles for which film rights have been purchased, directors and/or screenwriters hired, and then, nothing.

If you’ve been wondering how likely some big-name titles will make it to the screen, below is the rundown.

Quite possibly:

The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, Michael Chabon

Maybe:

The Corrections, Jonathan Franzen

Unlikely:

Geek Love, Katherine Dunn

This cult classic just cannot get off the ground as a film.

A Confederacy of Dunces, John Kennedy Toole

The Secret History, Donna Tartt

A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering Genius, Dave Eggers

It seems Eggers is more interested in adapting Where the Wild Things are, which is scheduled for October.
