"A Thousand Splendid Suns" Shining at Columbia Pictures



Columbia Pictures and producer Scott Rudin will develop a big screen adaptation of Khaled Hosseini's book "A Thousand Splendid Suns."

Working hand in hand with producer Scott Rudin, Columbia Pictures is about to make "A Thousand Splendid Suns", a dramatic picture set against the backdrop of the war in Afghanistan, Variety has reported.

Based on Khaled Hosseini's novel of the same title set to hit stores in May under Riverhead Press, the flick concerns the intimate friendship of two Muslim women through ten years of marriage to the same man. Names to either star or direct have not yet been known.

Hosseini, an Afghan American author who is also a physician, previously saw his first book being brought to the big screen by DreamWorks/Paramount Pictures. Titled "The Kite Runner", the same as the book's name, the picture is currently in post-production and set to open in theaters on November 2 this year.
