Par trio has novel idea

'Elliot' helmer Daldry ready to make 'Corrections'

Director Stephen Daldry, screenwriter David Hare and producer Scott Rudin are reteaming at Paramount for an adaptation of Jonathan Franzen’s National Book Award winner “The Corrections.”

The trio just completed the film adaptation of Michael Cunningham’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel “The Hours” for Par.

Hare has begun writing the script for “The Corrections,” which could be the next project for “Billy Elliot” helmer Daldry. Production is expected to begin this winter, after the late-fall release of “The Hours.”

Rudin bought Franzen’s novel with his own money last summer, before it was published by Farrar Straus & Giroux, and then set it up at Paramount. Franzen’s novel portrays three generations of a deeply dysfunctional Midwestern family that converge for a final Christmas at the family home.

Franzen gained notoriety recently when, after “Corrections” was tapped by Oprah Winfrey for her show’s book club segment, he made public comments that he was uncomfortable with the distinction. She subsequently pulled the book from her show.
