Movies: The Hawkline Monster

Tony McNamara, the Oscar-nominated co-writer of The Favourite, is in negotiations to team up again with the film's director, Yorgos Lanthimos, to adapt Richard Brautigan's novel The Hawkline Monster, according to the Hollywood Reporter. New Regency is behind the project, "which also has a bevy of producers on board."

First published in 1974, the novel "has a decades-in-the-making history that saw Hal Ashby try to mount an adaptation for Jack Nicholson and Dustin Hoffman, and later Jeff and Beau Bridges, to star. Tim Burton also tried his hand at an adaptation," THR noted.
