John Crowley Finds ‘What Was Lost’
20 May 2008 :
John Crowley
BAFTA and IFTA winning Irish director John Crowley (Boy A, Intermission) is attached to direct the screen adaptation of Catherine O’Flynn’s award winning novel ‘What Was Lost’.

‘What Was Lost’ is the debut novel for Catherine O’Flynn. Published in January 2007, the book was longlisted for the 2007 Man Booker Prize for Fiction and the Orange Prize for Fiction and won the prestigious First Novel prize at the Costa Book Awards in January 2008. The story centres upon the disappearance of a young girl in 1984 and the people who continue the search for her twenty years later.

The Heyday Films / Film Four co-production is in the early stages of development with ‘Harry Potter’ producer David Heyman and co-producer Rosie Alison (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas) behind optioning the project. A screenwriter is now being sought to adapt the story for the big screen.

Director John Crowley received critical acclaim for his powerful drama ‘Boy A’, which also garnered him a BAFTA TV Award for directing earlier this month. The director is currently working on another project with Heyday Films, ‘Is There Anybody There?’, starring Oscar winner Michael Caine (The Cider House Rules, Alfie) and Irish actress Anne Marie Duff (Garage, Shameless).
