Well that didn’t take long. Only weeks after the news that J.K. Rowling has published a pseudonymous novel, a number of Hollywood Studios are clamoring for the rights to adapt The Cuckoo’s Calling into a feature film.
Leading the adaptation charge is Warner Bros., who of course worked closely with Rowling to bring all seven Harry Potter books to life on the big screen.
Rowling was revealed to the author of the crime book earlier this month, having published The Cuckoo’s Calling under the name Robert Galbraith. Once the news broke, however, the novel surged to number one on the Amazon bestseller chart and has now garnered the attention of Hollywood.
Prior to the leak about the authorship, the novel had received two offers from television production companies.
The Cuckoo’s Calling is the first in a series, which Rowling will continue to write under Galbraith’s name. According to Galbraith’s website, the sequel is already completed and set to be released in 2014.
