Fine Line Features has hired Charley Stadler to direct the SF thriller movie Roofworld, with Dave Mitchell on board to write the screenplay adaptation of Christopher Fowler's 1988 novel, Variety reported.
surprising how i found this. i read Roofworld years ago and wasn't utterly impressed with its dark storyline. the denizens of the roofs were alway one page away and when you did meet them it was unsatisfactory. there are many other books i would turn into a film (and this is a book, not a short story!)
