Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch to get movie adaptation

Warner Bros. has acquired the film rights to Donna Tartt’s much-lauded Pulitzer-winning 2013 novel, The Goldfinch. Brett Ratner’s RatPac Entertainment will produce, along with Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson from Color Force. Exactly how much of Tartt’s 800-page behemoth will actually make it onto the screen is a mystery: The novel’s chronology covers about 20 years and tackles several subjects, including coming of age, life in New York, post-traumatic stress, and the lead character’s relationship with the eponymous painting. There’s no word yet on a prospective writer or director for the project. It’s also worth noting that Warner Bros. bought the rights to Finch’s 1992 book, The Secret History, years ago, a transaction that’s yet to produce an actual film. But perhaps The Goldfinch’s much higher profile will finally get this one rolling.
