Moonwalking with Einstein Movie Rights Bought by Columbia
Adaptations of original pieces of literature are about as daring as things get in Hollywood of late, so the news that Columbia Pictures have acquired the rights to a marginal best-seller comes as a real surprise.
Only a “marginal” bestseller? It was #2 on Amazon last I checked.
EDIT: the original source of the information is obsessedwithfilm.com. Columbia chairman, Doug Belgrad, on the Moonwalking with Einstein movie:
“This is a very special book which transcends the already fascinating subject of memory. By explaining in personal and entertaining fashion a great deal about how our brains work, Joshua has written a book that sheds light on how memory is connected to humanity….”
The latest movie information, according to the NY Times:
- Director: Mike White
- Producers: Matt Tolmach, Mike White, Ben LeClair
- Studio: Columbia TriStar Motion Picture Group, Paramount Pictures
- Production Company: Rip Cord Productions
It looks like Moonwalking with Einstein will be a major movie. I hope that it helps popularize memory techniques.
