Levinson Adapts His Own “Sixty-Six”

Barry Levinson (“Wag the Dog,” “Liberty Heights”) will adapt and direct an independently-financed film version of his own coming of age novel “Sixty Six” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Set in 1966 Baltimore on the eve of significant historical events such as the counterculture movement and the war in Vietnam, ‘Six’ follows a staffer at a local television station and also features a diner as the center of social activity.

Levinson most recently completed “Polliwood,” which is premiering this week at the Tribeca Film Festival.
