One of this year's shortlisted books is to be made into a movie! Trash by Andy Mulligan - one of the six titles in our Longer Novel Category - has been picked up by Working Title and Peapie Films, and is set to be turned into a movie! Richard Curtis will write the screenplay, while Stephen Daldry, director of Billy Elliot, will direct.
Anyone who has read the gripping tale of three friends who make a mysterious and dangerous discovery amidst the dump site they call home, will not be surprised to hear film rights to the book have been snapped up; the description in the book is so rich and powerful that as you read you feel you could easily be sat in a cinema soaking up all the action as it unfolds!
