It's official. And it's Weinstein.
The Weinstein Co. has acquired worldwide film rights to the Pulitzer Prize and Tony-winning play "August: Osage County" and will produce a feature adaptation....The theatre has found its Tarantino! Rejoice!!!
Weinstein said his company will fully finance and distribute the film with an eye toward a 2011 release....
I've loved the writing since I was given a 240-page script for a three-hour play that starred nobody, that had no workshop," Weinstein said. "My reaction was similar to the feeling I had when I read Quentin Tarantino's script for 'True Romance.' Tracy has that kind of voice."
