Working Title Bring in Dave Andron to Adapt Sci-Fi Novel Stone Rider
It seems to be the year for film rights being bought for books which have yet to be published. David Hofmeyr’s dystopian science fiction novel Stone Rider which isn’t out until 16th July is the next of many to have this happen, with Working Title setting Justified executive producer Dave Andron to work.
Adam Stone wants freedom and peace. He wants a chance to escape Blackwater, the dust-bowl desert town he grew up in. Most of all, he wants the beautiful Sadie Blood. Alongside Sadie and the dangerous outsider, Kane, Adam will ride the Blackwater Trail in a brutal race that will test them all, body and soul. Only the strongest will survive. The prize? A one-way ticket to Sky-Base and unimaginable luxury.And for a chance at this new life, Adam will risk everything . . .
Good luck – and may you live to see the sky.
The book has been described as The Hunger Games meets The Road, and that makes sense to hire Andron who has been executive producer of the FX hit series Justified, which was spawned from author Elmore Leonard’s fiction. Andron has written on the series since its inception.
