Jean-Luc Godard May Adapt Holocaust Book

14863462.JPGJean-Luc Godard, the French film director who publicly criticized Steven Spielberg for his handling of Schindler’s List, is considering adapting a book about the Holocaust.

The director is eying “The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million” by NY Times writer Daniel Mendelsohn, a title that focused on one journalist’s attempt to find out what happened to his family in Poland during the Nazi occupation. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the book was popular in France–securing the French literary award, Prix Medicis.

Here’s more about the potential film: “Godard, who turns 79 in the fall, never has taken on the Holocaust directly, but several of his films — including the Algerian war picture ‘Le petit soldat,’ the anti-war pic ‘Les carabiniers’ and his most recent work, the 2004 triptych ‘Notre musique’ — deal with complex political and philosophical questions.”
