I'm a bit curious as to the status of the film adaptation as I had heard that Ray himself was spearheading the screenplay.
Is the film still in the works?
Not really spearheading, but he was involved in its development. I actually invited the two writers who are doing the screenplay to the Irish wake last weekend and they were going to come, but couldn't at the last minute. I will be seeing them soon, so I'll try to find out more. I do know that the production is slated to begin in the Spring or Summer of 2014.
I wanted this option and actually wrote a chapter of the book into script format to show Ray a few years ago. He loved it but told me that he had just sold it to another. These are the folks he sold it to.
