Film Adaptation of The Turning by Tim Winton

| No TrackBacks
Tim Winton's The Turning, which Austlit refers to as comprising "...seventeen overlapping stories of second thoughts and mid-life regret set in the brooding small-town world of coastal Western Australia," is to be adapted into a film with each story to be directed by a different director. 

There are some rather interesting names attached to the project including Cate Blanchett, David Wenham and Mia Wasikowska.  But film?  And seventeen directors?  I would have thought a television series might have been a better option.

And to show you how confusing this all is, the Internet Movie DataBase has an entry for the film but with the three listed above slated for acting roles rather than anything directorial. IMDb only has 10 directors listed.  Well, that's a relief.
