Moira Buffini (Jane Eyre) will be writing the screenplay for the film adaptation of Erin Morgenstern‘s fantasy novel, The Night Circus. The book was released last September and since then has become a New York Times best seller and move rights were picked up by Summit Entertainment in January. Looks like it made a huge impression in a short period of time! (I hadn’t even heard of this before tonight but now it appears that I have to get out from under my rock and read this thing.)
David Heyman (of Harry Potter fame) and Jeff Clifford will be producing the film.
I went looking for a synopsis of the book to share with my fellow ignorant people… and found something even better: a trailer for the novel! It actually sounds really interesting. I’m looking forward to one day reading this thing and seeing how the film goes.
