Glengarry Glen Gladwell

1003463_215X340.jpgWhat if Al Pacino starred in an adaptation of Malcolm Gladwell‘s nonfiction book “Blink?” The mind reels with title possibilities: Malcolm’s Way, The Scarface Point, or Glengarry Glen Gladwell.

According to Hollywood Reporter, these and other puns will be coming to headline writers near you as Pacino is considering playing a role in a fictional adaptation of Gladwell’s bestseller. The script was written by Stephen Gaghan–the director and screenwriter of Syriana.

Here’s more from this mind-bending story: “Gaghan’s script will center on the relationship between an older man (Pacino) and the twentysomething son he was never close to. The two reconnect early on in the pic, and the boy, an idealistic drifter who’s teaching in a downtown New York school, and the father, a finance type living in Connecticut, must navigate their new relationship.” (Via KFZuzulo)
