The Telegraph UK interviewed Richard Brown, an executive producer on the HBO crime drama, True Detective, and this is what unfolded:
“Brown told the Telegraph that he was “very excited” about the project. “It’s probably the greatest American novel of all time,” he said.
Heller’s WWII satire is being adapted for TV by Luke Davies, the Australian screenwriter behind this year’s James Dean biopic, Life. The miniseries is slated to be directed by David Michôd, best known for the 2010 crime thriller Animal Kingdom.
Brown, head of New York production company Passenger, described the series as “in the very early stages”: “it’s still being written… who knows when it comes out or how long it will be, but we are very excited to make it happen, and we look forward to the challenge.”
