David Gordon Green Adapting Q

When you think of the letter Q in movies, chances are your brain flits either to James Bond’s Major Boothroyd, Star Trek's capricious super-alien or the Winged Serpent. Or, you know, none of the above. But now there’s a chance it could drift towards a new planned film by David Gordon Green.

Sony has announced (in a statement picked up by Variety) that it’s nabbed the feature rights to Evan Mandery’s novel Q for the writer/director to tackle as a future project.

The twisty comic drama finds a man who getting an unexpected visit from a future version of himself, who warns him that marrying the love of his life would be a very bad idea. But though our hero agrees, he later regrets the choice and sets out to track down the woman once again.

There’s no word on when Green will get started on the movie, as he has lots of possible projects sitting in his development file. His next film, Jonah Hill comedy The Sitter, is scheduled for January 20.
