Luke Rhinehart novels headed for big screen

15th October 2009

Two novels from Luke Rhinehart are set to appear on the silver screen, it has been revealed.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, producer Andrew Bonner-Walter intends to make the cult author's Naked Before the World and The Search for the Dice Man into feature films.

Rhinehart, whose real name is George Cockcroft, shot to fame with the publication of his debut The Dice Man in 1971 and wrote a series of books about a psychiatrist who uses dice to make life-changing decisions.

Made under the A Random Production banner, Naked Before the World will begin shooting in the UK and Mallorca, where Rhinehart penned the novel, in February next year.

It will mark the directorial debut of Neil Corbould and has already gained USD 8 million (GBP 4.9 million) in backing from investors.

The British company is also said to be negotiating with Rhinehart for film options on two of his other novels, Whim and White Wind, Black Rider.

The Sunday Telegraph said that The Dice Man 'launched a psychiatric revolution' following its publication, while Time Out described it as 'hilarious and well-written'.
