Dogwoof Boards Docu About ‘Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time’

LONDON — Dogwoof has come on board to handle sales for a feature-documentary based on “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,” the hit stage adaptation of Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel.

The film, which is in production, uses the Olivier Award-winning stage show — playing in London’s West End and on Broadway — to frame a cinematic exploration of life on the autistic spectrum.

The documentary is produced by Martin Rosenbaum at Lone Star Productions (“Frankenstein: A Modern Myth,” “Pervert’s Guide to Ideology”) in collaboration with National Theatre Productions and National Theatre Live.

The deal will see Dogwoof act as international sales agents across all platforms worldwide. The project will be presented to broadcasters at Mipdoc and MipTV this month.

Rosenbaum said: “With this documentary, we have a rare opportunity to use a universally popular novel and play as a way into a cinematic exploration of how people on the autistic spectrum, and those who care for them, live with the condition.”

The novel, which was published in 2003, was the winner of more than 17 literary awards, including the Whitbread award, and was translated into 44 languages. It was adapted for the National Theatre in 2012 by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliott, and went on to win seven Olivier Awards, including best new play.

The story starts with Christopher, 15 years old, standing besides Mrs Shears’ dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in a book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
