    Native Son

    There's an adaptation of Richard Wright's Native Son on the way: The story mentions the 1986 movie version with Oprah Winfrey, but there was also a 1951 version with Richard Wright as Bigger Thomas. Both are on YouTube, though I am doubtful of the legality of either upload. Here's a trailer for the 1951 version:
  2. This is a real thing. For comparison, this is a [not neccessarily safe for work] parody thing from a few years ago: Indiewire: Link to our thread on the Archie vs. Zombies movie. Shannon Purser (Barb from Stranger Things) is playing Big Ethel. I don't see any way this could be good, particularly after that trailer, but it intersects with a number of my interests (small town stuff; nostalgia; murder-mystery; etc), so I'll be checking it out anyway.
  3. Well, this is actually happening. So I guess we should have a thread. Here's the trailer. Not really impressed. Dench and Dafoe look good, but I don't get much of a sense of the flavor of this adaptation. And Branagh's Poirot--at least, in this little bit we see--is a failure on pretty much every level.
  4. This might be of interest around these parts primarily for the Sufjan Stevens connection (that is, Stevens is providing the soundtrack, so here's a link to our thread): Aciman's most recent novel, Enigma Variations is getting a little positive buzz.

    In Dubious Battle

    Sigh. Links to our threads on: Child of God The Sound and the Fury As I Lay Dying The Broken Tower American Tabloid Howl [not Franco-directed]

    I can't find a thread on this. Washington is here reprising a role he played onstage, so we can get a feel for how his performance will go based on clips on YouTube: Based on what I've seen--which isn't the whole play--I'm not really that much of a fan of Washington's interpretation of the character. Then again, he's up against James Earl Jones: Link to our thread "August Wilson dies."

    American Pastoral

    Deadline: FWIW, I did a search and found nothing. Feel free to ahem me if need be. Link to the thread on the Great American Novel, where Roth is mentioned. Here's Adam Chandler begging people to stop adapting Roth. Of the previous Roth adaptations, we seem to only have a thread on The Human Stain.
  8. Comingsoon.net: Link to our threads on the original movie and the remake.
  9. Daniel Craig to Star in Jonathan Franzen's 'Purity' at Showtime Link to our thread on The Corrections adaptation, which apparently never got picked up. I've not had the time or the inclination to dig into Franzen, but I know some folks around here have, so I thought we might want a thread on this (and, who knows, perhaps I'll wind up reading the novel to prep for the show).
  10. Thread Links: Infamous Capote Thread titled "Alexander vs Capote vs Murrow vs Cash" Thread on true-life novels, where In Cold Blood is mentioned Deadline:‘In Cold Blood’ Getting TV Event Series Treatment In Weinstein Co Deal. Given the popularity--or, at least, success--of True Detective, as well as that of podcasts like Serial, this move makes sense. And In Cold Blood--which I listened to on my drive from Indianapolis a few weeks back--does seem to lend itself to this sort of event television. FWIW, this will be the third adaptation of In Cold Blood and the second for television. The first, from 1996, featured Eric Roberts as Perry Smith; Robert Blake played Smith in the 1967 movie.
  11. The Wrap: Link to our thread on Norman Mailer. Link to our thread on true-life novels, where Mailer comes up. Links to our threads on Berlinger's Paradise Lost and Crude. Berlinger is also mentioned in the thread on The Devil and Daniel Johnston.
