It's going to be a movie!

Jean-Pierre Jeunet who directed Amelie  will be teaming up with his long time collaborator, screenwriter Guillaume Laurant to make the film adaption of The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet, by Reif Larsen.  

This was my favorite novel of 2009 and needless to say Amelie is a classic in the feel good category of film. What a delightful pairing! Like peanut butter and chocolate, or Laurel and Hardy. If you haven't read Larsen's debut novel, well then get thee to the Odyssey, we can sell you a copy. I seriously can't wait. I wonder who they will cast as Mr. Tecumseh Sparrow Spivet? Who would be your guess for a genius, 12-year-old, cartographer?

Hmmm...what about the boy who plays Hugo Cabret in the current film? Would he make a good T. S.?
