A little bit of "writers hired to adapt things" news this Sunday afternoon. DreamWorks has hired Mike White (“School of Rock,” the recently-cancelled “Enlightened”) to adapt the latest novel from Matthew Quick, author of “Silver Linings Playbook.” Quick’s “The Good Luck of Right Now” will be published Spring 2014 and is about a man who takes care of his mother with dementia and falls for a librarian who believes she and her brother were once abducted by aliens.

One could argue there's nothing subtle about the movies made by South Korean filmmaker Park Chan-wook, the director behind "Oldboy," including the celebrated Vengeance Trilogy and the loopy vampire movie, "Thirst." Violence reigns in his films, cameras pirouette like self-conscious characters in his ensemble, and style is king. But in the past, especially in "Oldboy" and "Sympathy For Lady Vengeance," his penchant for the outrageous and over-the-top always included sublime, comically brutal and sometimes even emotionally devastating conclusions that could leave the jaw agape. Style was always in service of a story and characters.

Sometimes getting through the grueling marathon that is the development process in Hollywood takes time, and in the case of the adaptation of David Wroblewski’s “The Story of Edgar Sawtelle,” it’s been two and a half years since the project was first announced with the combined might of Tom Hanks and Oprah Winfrey behind it. But THR is reporting that “Prison Break” star Wentworth Miller is in negotiations to be the latest writer to take a crack at the adaptation.

If you had told us back in 2005 that the star of "Prison Break" was going to become one of the promising screenwriting talents in Hollywood, we would have said you were crazy. But that's just happened to Wentworth Miller. Under the pen name Ted Foulke (which he seems to have now abandoned), the actor wrote "Stoker" which quickly landed on the Black List, and then assembled a jaw dropping brace of talent with Park Chan-wook directing, and Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska, Alden Ehrenreich, Jacki Weaver and more starring. It's one of the most anticipated movies of the year. And now, he's got something else brewing.

While "Prison Break" star Wentworth Miller hasn't quite established an acting career to go along with his fancypants name, he's becoming someone to watch on the screenwriting front. Under his nom de plume Ted Foulke, he penned "Stoker" which has quickly attracted Park Chan-Wook ("Oldboy") to direct and a helluva cast with Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska all attached to star. Not too shabby.
