Focus Features is set to develop a feature film adaptation of Daniel Clowes’ graphic novel Patience. They’ve also hired Charlie McDowell (The One I Love and The Discovery) to direct the film from a script that will be written by Justin Lader.
The novel is about sacrifices in the name of love. “When his wife Patience is murdered, Jack falls into a deep pit of anger, grief, and guilt. Ten years later, he learns of a time machine that might allow him to fix things. From there, he plunges into a psychedelic journey through Patience’s past and the events that shaped her into the woman he knew and loved.”
Focus Features has been trying to get this film project into development for years and it looks like it’s finally coming together.
