Scott Rudin Plans 1977 New York Tale City on Fire

October 28, 2013


Although the book doesn't even have a publishing deal in place yet, The Hollywood Reporter today brings word that the screen rights to City on Fire, Garth Rick Hallberg's upcoming novel set in 1977 New York, have been picked up by producer Scott Rudin.

Details on City on Fire are currently few, but it is said to offer an ensemble look at life in the Big Apple in the summer of 1977, leading up to the infamous blackout that took place on July 13 and 14.

Rudin's latest, Captain Phillips, is in theaters now, close to breaking the $100 million mark at the box office. Next up is his re-teaming with Wes Anderson when The Grand Budapest Hotel hits theaters on March 7, 2014.
