Sherman Alexie's 'Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian' To Be Made Into Film

Sherman Alexie will adapt the screenplay for the film version of his novel, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, The Hollywood Reporter revealed. Hugh Jackman is rumored to be interested in playing a supporting role (a teacher?) and in serving the film. The producers of A Fault in Our Stars and Deadpool are contributing to the project as well. It's been about 10 years since Alexie's novel was released, but it still remains a popular work in schools and elsewhere. That popularity has now been capitalized into a burgeoning movie. 

If you've never read the book, you can find a copy at Powell's or find a local bookseller through IndieBound.
