“Then We Came to” Ferris’ next book.

Is it unnamed, or "Unnamed"?

Miramax Films and producer Scott Rudin have acquired screen rights to "The Unnamed," an upcoming novel by Joshua Ferris about a man who comes down with a mysterious affliction that fractures his family.

Deal comes the same week that Ferris’ last novel, "Then We Came to the End," was awarded the 2008 Hemingway Foundation/Pen Award; the novel is also a finalist for the National Book Award. Ferris is adapting "End" for HBO.

I’m glad it’s going through HBO; no need to kowtow to Hollywood bigwigs, ruining one adaptation after another.  Speaking of which: though I love them both as actors, this looks like bad casting:

Rudin is currently in production on a Stephen Daldry-directed adaptation of Bernhard Schlink novel "The Reader," with Kate Winslet and Ralph Fiennes starring.
