Vonnegut novel to be adapted by father-son scribe duo

Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way production company will develop and produce a feature film adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut’s classic dystopian novel “Cat’s Cradle,” in partnership with manager-producer Hillard Elkins’ Elkins Entertainment. The project will be written by James V. Hart (“Sahara”) and his son Jake Hart (“Glengarry, Bob Ross”). Vonnegut’s “Cradle” is an apocalyptic tale about the planet’s ultimate fate and a race to recover the world’s most dangerous substance, Ice-Nine, a new form of ice that freezes at room temperature.
