JAMES by Percival Everett Will Be Adapted for Film

This will not be Percival Everett’s first trip to the silver screen. His 2001 novel Erasure was the source material for 2023’s American Fiction, which garnered writer/director Cord Jefferson an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay. Star Jeffrey Wright was nominated for Best Actor in a Lead Role. With the likes of Spielberg and Waititi attached to such a prestigious literary work, James is likely to be Oscar fodder as well. We’ll be eagerly awaiting news of a finalized directorial deal and casting announcements to come.
