They’ve tapped Christopher Hampton, the writer who managed to adapt Ian McEwan‘s “Atonement.” Winfrey’s company, Harpo Films, had bought the rights to the critically-acclaimed book, and it took a number of conversations to bring Hampton into the project.
Here’s a quote from Hampton about the adaptation: “I don’t know why Sam wanted me to do it, but I do know he feels that he has to make it. He told me there really isn’t anybody else who could make this film, since he is both a film director and an expat cricket-lover living in New York.”
