Some great news came over the transom yesterday. Gavin O'Connor—the filmmaker perhaps best known for Warrior, the fantastic Tom Hardy/Joel Edgerton film*, but who has had a hand in many great projects—and his production partner have optioned Cataract City.
This, obviously, is a wonderful thing to have happened. There's really not much else to say, because it's just happened. I'm incredibly pleased and grateful. And—with the permission of the other involved parties—I may comment on it here from time to time.
* It also starred Frank Grillo, who I loved in both Warrior and The Grey. And of course Nick Nolte, who earned a Best Supporting Actor nod.
I'll leave you with the final scene from Warrior, with the song from The National that played over it.
