Awesome news for Blake Crouch--his first book, Desert Places, has been optioned by a very savvy, award winning, young director, Marc Wilkins. And Marc has hired Blake to write the screenplay.
This book is soooo dark, I had to keep putting it down--just to catch my breath, and keep my sanity. (Guess that part didn't work.) The movie promises to be deeply disturbing , but classy--how can it be anything else with the team of Blake and Marc? And I'm excited, because they're planning to film it in the Four Corners Area. I told Blake I'd love to be a go-fer, but forget about Kraft Services.
