I learned some very interesting things. 1st of all, and most importantly, Child 44 is coming out in movie theaters in November! The stars are Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, and Noomi Rapace (the actress who played Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish version of the Dragon Tattoo trilogy). Tom hasn't even seen it yet. But he's pretty darn excited. And, on top of that, The Farm, which is a standalone, has been optioned by a British company. Tom doesn't know if they will make movies of The Secret Speech (#2) or Agent 6 (#3). He said it depends on how Child 44 does at the box office. And, finally, he has just penned a spy drama series for the BBC. Is he talented or what?
Lest you have forgotten, I loved Tom Rob Smith's trilogy, with Child 44, The Secret Speech, and Agent 6. In fact, Child 44 is in Volume I of my Fiction for the Non-Fiction Reader (FFTNFR) - 2/19/11. And The Secret Speech is in Volume III - April 7, 2012. Is that enough proof for you? If you still haven't read these books, get on it. And I will be starting The Farm tomorrow.
