DreamWorks Pictures will in the near future out a new film. It's titled "The Kite Runner," an adaptation of Khaled Hosseini's best-selling novel that William Horberg is producing with Marc Forster to direct and David Benioff wrote the screenplay.
"The Kite Runner" follows a man who returns to his native Afghanistan, which is under Taliban rule, to right a long-standing wrong and rescue the son of a childhood friend. The book, which the film based on, was Hosseini's debut novel and published by Riverhead Press in spring 2003 to glowing reviews and has remained on the New York Times paperback fiction best-seller list since September 2004.
