Patrick Wilson and Alec Baldwin To Appear In Adaptation Of Charlie Huston's 'Caught Stealing'
Word out of the Toronto Film Festival is that Patrick Wilson and Alec Baldwin will appear in an adaptation of Charlie Huston's fantastic novel, Caught Stealing. No word yet on who's directing, but the script will be written by David Hayter (Watchmen, X-Men 2).
Here's the synopsis of the book, from Word & Film:
Caught Stealing centers around Henry “Hank” Thompson, a former high school superstar athlete turned alcoholic bartender, who gets more than he bargains for after agreeing to watch his neighbor’s cat. Hank soon finds himself in the center of a bloody treasure hunt through Manhattan, being chased by a dirty cop, Russian gangsters, and a cast of equally colorful characters, all vying for a piece of the hidden fortune.
Patrick Wilson will play Hank and Baldwin will play Detective Roman. Some solid casting right there, for a book that I absolutely love. I love pretty much everything Huston has written. In a perfect world, they'll adapt the entire trilogy. And then they'll make an HBO series from his Joe Pitt books.
Anyone else read Huston? Excited to see his work headed to the screen?
