TV Adaptation of The Slap


"The Age" is reporting that Christos Tsiolkas's latest novel, The Slap, is set to be adapted for the small screen by Matchbox Pictures. The current aim is for the book to be adapted over eight episodes - one for each major character in the book - and for it to be screened on ABC TV. Two pluses in my view.

But it's early days yet and just because a film project has been announced is only the first of many steps along the way to it appearing on the crystal tube. 


There is surely a part for Vince Colosimo in that.

My first thought exactly, Genevieve!
