Charlie Kaufman, the scriptwriter for Adaptation and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, has been tapped to adapt THE KNIFE OF NEVER LETTING GO, the first book of Patrick Ness's Chaos Walking trilogy, for the big screen. While many young adult series have done well in theaters lately, their screen adaptations have played it fairly safe. Considering Ness didn't write a safe series, I'm hoping for an equally ambitious movie.
Or maybe I'm just hoping for Adaptation 2: Adapt Harder.
