Following on from here (my blog)
is from James Patterson’s ‘stable’ of unknown authors and something since made into film which no cinema appears to have bought being imdb: tt0825283. Its heritage as childrens literature is apparently based on a ‘adult’ book but it was an ok watch.
3/5 bananas – if James Patterson is not deemed hollywood suitable yet i would not want to be a hollywood film maker. Mind you Patterson is business genius not a singular writer so hollywood probably is unwise to interpret the authors body of work after all if they screwed up Philip Pullman they can wreck others.
I do not normally do popular literature (or beach books) but it sells and i am sure the market value of Paterson will mean sooner or later its going to be a thing and tv is probably a better home for it.
