It’s about time for TV adap­ta­tion

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

2002 Bri­tish film that pro­pelled then-child star Ni­cholas Hoult (pic­tured) to fame is to be adapted for the small screen as a new US TV se­ries. About A Boy, which costarred Hoult and Hugh Grant, is be­ing devel­oped by Fri­day Night Lights pro­ducer Ja­son Ka­tims. Based on the novel by Nick Hornby, the film chron­i­cled the re­la­tion­ship be­tween an awk­ward, fa­ther­less 12-year-old boy and a lazy bach­e­lor. Grey’s Anatomy star Pa­trick Dempsey was orig­i­nally billed to lead the cast in a planned 2003 TV project based on the film, but the idea failed to take off.
