I just read that Khaled Hosseini’s second novel, A Thousand Splendid Suns, shall be adapted into a movie.
There isn’t a lot of information about the adaptation currently, but here’s what the author wrote on his blog:
A quick update. Because many of you have asked, I will quickly address the film version of A Thousand Splendid Suns.
It is being adapted to the screen by Steve Zaillian, the brilliant screenwriter behind Schindler’s List and Searching for Bobby Fisher. The film will be produced over at Sony/Columbia by Producer Scott Rudin, who just won an Oscar for No Country For Old Men. As of now, the matters of casting, location, and language have not been decided.
I am looking forward to this movie, because I’m interested in seeing how they will portray Afghanistan and who the actors will be.
