Goldfinch to get screen adaptation

Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch (Little, Brown) is to be adapted for the screen by the production company behind the film adaptations of The Hunger Games.

Nina Jacobson’s Color Force is searching for a filmmaker to adapt the novel, The Wrap reported.

Jacobson told the website: “We are looking for the right filmmaker, and then we'll choose the right home based on that filmmaker. We've been thinking we are more likely to make a limited series for TV. There's so much scope to the book. At the same time, a filmmaker could come in with a perspective that changes our mind.”

Jacobson is currently on set producing the final two films in "The Hunger Games" series, The Wrap said, but her company has been searching for someone to oversee The Goldfinch’s adaptation in the meantime.

The Wrap said: “Color Force and ICM, which represents Tartt, have had informal discussions with potential movie and TV studios about adapting the project. If they decided to make a movie instead of a miniseries, Lionsgate, which distributed 'The Hunger Games', would seem like a potential home. Yet Jacobson said the project would go to whomever wanted it most.”
