Another Elmore Leonard Novel Heads To The Big Screen image
Given how many Elmore Leonard novels have been adapted into film, it feels like we should finally be out of content. But writer-director Charlie Matthau has found yet another, and is planning to adapt Leonard's 1988 novel Freaky Deaky into a feature film. The book is a little different from the usual gangsters-and-guns we expect from Leonard. The story is about a group of former 1960s radicals who find themselves getting into a new kind of trouble in 1970s L.A.

"I am the luckiest director in the world to be able to bring Elmore Leonard's favorite and finest novel to the screen," Matthau-- yes, the son of Walter-- told THR. Production on the film is scheduled to begin in January.
