Val Landi’s A Woman from Cairo gets film offer

Val Landi, who has pub­lished his debut thrill­er A Woman from Cairo via Amazon’s own out­fit, Booksurge, reports that his book has received a Hollywood film offer. This is prob­ably an ‘option’, and does not rep­res­ent a very high prob­ab­il­ity that the film will even­tu­ally be made, but it does indic­ate — as Landi points out — that Hollywood is pre­pared to take great­er risks with con­tro­ver­sial mater­i­al than the American pub­lish­ing industry, which I find a little sur­pris­ing. Best of luck to Val: he’s put his money where his mouth is, and it looks like a good invest­ment.

I’ve blogged about Val before, of course.
