Exciting news with possible connection to Walker Percy.
A movie is being made about the life of John Kennedy Toole (author of A Confederacy of Dunces) based on the book "Butterfly in the Typewriter" by Corey Mclaughlin.
Nick Offerman is to play Ignatius Reilly, Thomas Mann (?) will be John Kennedy Toole, with Susan Sarandon as his mother.
Possibilities to play Percy (complete speculation) just based on the cast list from the article: Matthew Modine, Aidan Quinn, Carey Elwes.
I have written the writer to see if he has the inside scoop, will pass along any info that I receive.
