Cover detail of Jess Walter's "Beautiful Ruins"
Director Todd Field ("Little Children," "In the Bedroom") is set to direct an adaptation of Jess Walter's bestseller "Beautiful Ruins," centering on a near-love affair sparked in Italy in 1962, and rekindled in Hollywood half a century later. Field and Walter will co-pen the screenplay.

The project is a team-up between companies Cross Creek Pictures and Smuggler Films.

"Beautiful Ruins" was named one of the best books of 2012 by Entertainment Weekly, the New York Times, Amazon and NPR.

Field reportedly also has "A Creed of Violence" in the pipeline for 2014, based on Boston Terran's novel that takes place during the Mexican Revolution in 1910.
