I’ve been sort of running around like crazy today, as my friend and former editor, Juliet Ulman, sent me a photograph she took of her copy of Elle magazine’s September issue. It’s a photograph of the contributor’s page, where the photographer and film director Carter Smith is asked what he anticipates doing this fall, and he states that he hopes he’ll be directing the film adaptation of “Christopher Barzak’s book One for Sorrow“.
I about fell out of my chair. Mr. Smith indeed purchased an option to make my novel into a film last year, but you know, these sorts of things sometimes happen and most of the time they don’t. It still may not happen, but if he’s finished the screen adaptation of the novel, it probably means he’s still planning on it. Here’s hoping that he can make it happen. I would love to see how he translates the story to the screen.
Here’s the photo Juliet sent me. I’m still always surprised by the interest people have taken in this book. It’s very gratifying. 🙂
