Pawlikowski Begins His “Descent”

Pawel Pawlikowski (“My Summer of Love,” “The Last Resort”) has signed on for a film adaptation of James Meek’s Prince Maurice prize-winning novel “We Are Now Beginning Our Descent” for Coded Pictures says Screen Daily.

Toby Finlay (“Dorian Gray”) will adapt the story about a Scottish journalist and aspiring novelist who becomes a war correspondent in the Afghan mountains in the early days after 9/11. There he falls for an American reporter who causes him to often blur the line between observer and participant.

Pawlikowski just wrapped work on the Paris-set thriller “The Woman In The Fifth”. Filming on this is likely to kick off next year.
