Fox Has Acquired the Film Rights to THE FIREMAN by Joe Hill

Ya’ll are going to want to get your hands on The Fireman when it comes out May (I promise), so it’s very exciting that Fox has acquired the film rights! The Fireman will be out in the US in May from William Morrow.

Via Gollancz:

Fox has acquired rights to Joe Hill’s forthcoming novel The Fireman, to be published by Gollancz in hardback on the 7th June 2016.

Louis Leterrier (Clash of the Titans, Now You See Me) is said to be down to direct it. Temple Hill partners Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen (the Twilight saga, The Maze Runner, The Fault in our Stars) are said to be producing the film.

With the epic scope of The Passage and the emotional impact of The Road, The Fireman is a gripping end-of-the-world thriller. Set in a world overtaken by an incurable runaway pathogen that causes death by spontaneous combustion, the story follows school nurse Harper, who is determined to live long enough to deliver her baby. But when all it takes is a spark to start a deadly blaze, she’s going to need some help from the mysterious fireman.
