Rights to Station Eleven Acquired

On Tuesday, The Hollywood Reporter announced that film and television rights to Emily St. John Station ElevenMandel’s post-apocalyptic novel Station Eleven have been picked up by producer Scott Steindorff, who will produce the project along with Dylan Russell.  Both men shared Executive Producer credit for Jon Favreau’s 2014 indie hit “Chef”, as well as working on other films such as “Gimme Shelter” and “Love in the Time of Cholera”; and both recently were Executive Producers on the upcoming film “Jane Got a Gun”, starring Natalie Portman and Ewan McGregor.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Station Eleven revolves around a Hollywood star, his would-be savior and a nomadic group of actors roaming the scattered outposts of the Great Lakes region, risking everything for art and humanity.”  To get a more thorough review of the book, check out what we had to say about it here at LitStack.

While no talent has been attached to the project yet, with the producers paying “six digits” for the filming rights, here’s hoping that if Station Eleven does make it to the big screen, it will be as good to watch as the book is to read!
