Vonnegut at the movies

Although this has nothing to do with most of the academic discussions we have been having, I thought you all might be interested in this bit of information. I just read that Darren Aronofsky (who brought us the brilliant films Pi and Requiem for a Dream) may be directing a film version of Vonnegut's darkly humorous novel Cat's Cradle. The adapted screenplay will come from Richard Kelly (who wrote the weirdly elegant Donnie Darko among other films). If this project ends up happening I will be extremely excited.

If you would like to read more about the possibility of the film (which is still in pre-production) see Harry Knowles's website, Ain't-It-Cool-News.

If you have not had a chance to read the novel and are interested, you can get more info on Amazon.

Thanks for the info Patrick. I definitely share your excitement. Director of Requiem for a Dream and screen-writer of Donnie Darko- should be crazygood.
