A French literary sensation is getting the Hollywood treatment, with Deadline reporting Warner Bros has acquired The Truth About the Harry Qubert Affair as a directing vehicle for Ron Howard.
Originally published in French two years ago, the book quickly swept the country before buzz began building internationally. Next month the book will be released in the UK and the US. The story centers on a rising young novelist, who gets embroiled in a decades-old murder cold case when the body of a missing 15 year gold is dug up in the backyard of his mentor. Deciding to investigate the case himself, he naturally gets in way over his head.
I'll definitely be tracking down this book to see what the fuss is all about.
