…And Another SciFi Book Gets Adapted for Film: Charles Yu’s ‘How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe’
Hot off the heels of the announcement that Zoo City by Lauren Buekes, Boneshaker by Cherie Priest, and Grahame-Smith’s Unholy Night are headed to the big screen, comes word that Chris Columbus’ production company, 1492 Pictures, has acquired the rights to Charles Yu’s How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe.
Columbus and 1492 principals Michael Barnathan and Mark Radcliffe will produce and Brendan Bellomo is set to direct.
The novel centers on a time travel machine repairman — also named Charles Yu — who has spent the past 10 years traveling back and forth in time in search of his father, who has disappeared. When the fictional Yu falls into a time loop he must find a way to change the future.
