Together with Vendela Vida, Mr. Eggers has written his first screenplay for a movie called Away We Go. I just watched the preview. Looks like it could have a Garden State-like appeal, and they’ve bagged one of the best directors in the business, Sam Mendes (American Beauty and Revolutionary Road) along with Maya Rupolph from SNL and John Krasinski (who, as long as he should live, will be known as “Jim from The Office”).
Our book goes on sale June 2nd, with the movie opening in NYC and LA on June 5th. Put this on your radar![youtube 4mpLvUY8TUE]
