Identity Films Warms To “Mr. Timothy”

Identity Films is planning a feature film adaptation of Louis Bayard’s 2003 historical thriller novel “Mr. Timothy” says Variety.

Reimagining the Tiny Tim character from Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”, in this version he’s a twenty-something who resides in a London whorehouse in exchange for tutoring the madam.

He also struggles to wean himself from financial dependence on his ancient “Uncle” Ebenezer Scrooge. Anthony Mastromauro will produce.
