NMA: Movie News

By Adam Roberts | December 5, 2012
Categories: Book News

I'm delighted that MUSE films have optioned New Model Army. It is, I think, one of my two best novels, one of the things I'm proudest of writing, and although I know full well that only a tiny fraction of books optioned by film production companies ever actually make it to the Big Screen, nonetheless I've found the whole process fascinating. If it has done nothing else, this experience has given me the chance to hang out with the brilliant Chris Hanley, and talk film and filmmaking with him, which has been wonderful. Beyond that I got to write a treatment of my own novel, to see what a film option contract looked like, and to play the Imaginary Casting game. Hurrah!

    Wow, this is great news. If it does make it to film I'll be first in line to see it, I've always been a fan, and sounds like you will have quite a hand in the process, which is reassuring! Out of interest, can you share what you feel is the other of your best novels? Personally, I'm a huge fan of 'On'.

    While I'm here, do you know what will be in your short stories collection? Are they previously unseen works?

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Thanks, Duncan: that's much appreciated. Th identity of my other best novel is so obvious as not to need spelling out here, surely.

    The short story collection will include some new pieces, some rare or hard to find stories, and some greatest hits. Although 'hits' is stretching it a little. As is 'greatest'.
