As the entertainment news site Vulture is reporting today, Universal and ImageMovers (Robert Zemeckis’ production company) have hired a screenwriter to adapt my forthcoming novel, The Demonologist. And it’s an amazing choice.
Robert Schenkkan is a playwright, actor and writer for both TV and screen. He’s won the Pulitzer Prize for his play, The Kentucky Cycle, and has been twice-nominated for an Emmy for his work on the HBO mini-series, The Pacific.
As for adaptations, he wrote the pitch perfect The Quiet American (from the novel by Graham Greene, a hero of mine). His screenplay for The Conscientious Objector is currently in production.
