Scott Rudin Adapts Ferris’ Unnamed

Miramax Films and producer Scott Rudin (“No Country for Old Men”) have acquired screen rights to “The Unnamed,” an upcoming novel by Joshua Ferris says Variety.

The story follows a man who comes down with a mysterious affliction that fractures his family.

Ferris’ last novel, “Then We Came to the End,” was awarded the 2008 Hemingway Foundation/Pen Award this week. Ferris is adapting that work for HBO.

Rudin is currently in production on a Stephen Daldry-directed adaptation of Bernhard Schlink novel “The Reader,” with Kate Winslet and Ralph Fiennes starring.
