Dead Europe the Movie
Christos Tsiolkas' 2005 book Dead Europe is to be made into a film, Inside Film reports. The book’s plot follows protagonist Isaac as he’s besieged by his Greek heritage when he makes a trip to Europe and discovers his familiy’s curse.
Beginning production in 2011, the film will be directed by Tony Krawitz, best known for his production Jewboy. It will be a busy year for Krawitz as he’s also releasing his documentary The Tall Man based on the novel by Chloe Hooper. Also attached to the film are writer Louise Fox and producers Emile Sherman and Iain Canning.
With Tsiolkas' The Slap being adapted for television and his previous book Loaded filmed as Head On, the Greek Australian writer is almost as successful on the screen as he is on the page.
