Sony to adapt acclaimed graphic novel 'The Sculptor'
A mere two weeks after it was released to a wave of critical acclaim, Scott McCloud’s comics opus The Sculptor—his first work of fiction in over 20 years—has been snapped up for a film adaptation by Sony.
It’s the story of a frustrated young sculptor who makes a deal with Death—he gets the power to mold any substance with his bare hands, but he only gets 200 days to live. Things then get even more complicated when he meets the love of his life.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the graphic novel adaptation will be produced by Scott Rudin and Josh Bratman, who have worked on films like Captain Phillips, and the forthcoming Steve Jobs.
