Nick Hornby adaptation gears up for filming
A big-screen adaptation of Nick Hornby’s novel Juliet, Naked, is in the pipeline with production due to get underway later this summer in the UK.
Published in 2009, the book centres on Annie, who ends up having a relationship with an American singer-songwriter, Tucker Crowe, who just happens to be the subject of her superfan boyfriend Duncan’s obsession.
Regular Girls director Jesse Peretz will be calling the shots from a screenplay by Tamara Jenkins and Jim Taylor. Judd Apatow, Barry Mendel, Albert Berger, Jeffrey Soros and Ron Yerxa produce.
Among the cast reportedly on board are Rose Byrne as Annie, Ethan Hawke (Crowe) and Chris O’Dowd (Duncan).
