Does lightning strike twice?
The producers of “The Hunger Games” are about to find out. Nina Jacobson and her Color Force production company have optioned another book “The Goldfinch”, with hopes to turn it into the next big… thing.
Author Donna Tartt apparently yields quite a bit of sway, say-how and power here; she can dictate whether the book should become a film or TV series. Last year, it was revealed that ICM, who reps Tartt, was shopping “Goldfinch” to TV studios as a possible mini-series, suggesting Tartt might be keener to bring her story to a smaller screen.
Here’s Amazon’s summary of the book :
Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother. Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. Bewildered by his strange new home on Park Avenue, disturbed by schoolmates who don’t know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by his longing for his mother, he clings to the one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the underworld of art.
As an adult, Theo moves silkily between the drawing rooms of the rich and the dusty labyrinth of an antiques store where he works. He is alienated and in love-and at the center of a narrowing, ever more dangerous circle.
Meanwhile, Jacobson’s cash-cow “The Hunger Games : Catching Fire” has just hit DVD and Blu-ray.
