【TV】Sarah Tarkoffの「Sinless」シリーズ化へ

 
MarVista EntertainmentはSarah Tarkoffの「Eye of the Beholder」シリーズの1作目「Sinless」の権利を取得、TVシリーズ化する模様。

[内容]
In Grace Luther’s world, morality is physically enforced. Those who are "good" are blessed with beauty, while those who are not suffer horrifying consequences-disfigurement or even death. The daughter of a cleric, Grace has always had faith in the higher power that governs her world. But when she stumbles onto information that leaves her questioning whether there are more complicated-and dangerous-forces manipulating the people around her, she finds herself at the center of an epic battle, where good and evil are not easily distinguished. Despite all her efforts to live a normal teenage life, Grace is faced with a series of decisions that will risk the lives of everyone she loves-and, ultimately, her own.
With each page in this electrifying debut novel, Sarah Tarkoff masterfully plunges us into a nightmarish vision of the future. Full of high drama and pulsating tension, Sinless explores the essential questions teenagers wrestle with every day-What is beauty? What is faith? Do we take our surroundings at face value and accept all that we have been taught, or do we question the mores of the society into which we are born?-and places them in the context of a dark, dystopian world where appearances are most definitely deceiving

原作 Sinless (Eye of the Beholder) Sarah Tarkoff Harper Voyager

【映画】「All-American Murder」映画化へ

 
The Mark Gordon Companyはジェイムズ・パターソン(James Patterson)とAlex Abramovichの刊行予定の書籍「All-American Murder: The Rise and Fall of Aaron Hernandez, the Superstar Whose Life Ended on Murderers' Row」の映画化権を取得、作者のパターソンが制作総指揮。

マーク・ゴードン、マット・ジャクソンがビル・ロビンソン、レオポルド・ゴウトと制作。

この本はNFL選手アーロン・ヘルナンデスと彼による殺人事件について書かれたものである模様(彼は昨年刑務所内で自殺)。彼が非常に重度の「慢性外傷性脳症」(頭部への度重なる衝撃が原因とされる脳の疾患)であったことも最近ニュースになったのですが、これは映画の「コンカッション」及びジーン・マリー・ラスカスの原作を思い出させますなー
「All-American Murder」も翻訳版が出たら読んでみたいものです。

[内容]
He was a college All-American who became the youngest player in the NFL and later a Super Bowl veteran. He was a star tight end on the league-dominant New England Patriots, who extended his contract for a record $40 million. Aaron Hernandez's every move as a professional athlete played out in the headlines, yet he led a secret life-one that ended in a maximum security prison. What drove him to go so wrong, so fast?
All-American Murder is the first book to investigate - from the unique vantage point of the world's most popular writer - Aaron Hernandez's first-degree murder conviction and the mystery of his own untimely and shocking death. Drawing on original and in-depth reporting, this is an explosive true story of a life cut short in the dark shadow of fame.
