The world’s biggest movie festival, the Cannes Film Festival, will screen a new adaptation of a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Oscar-winning author Michael Chabon.
Cannes will screen the film “The Man with No Name” with a new version of the story by Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Chávez.
It will be the first time a novel about a legendary shipwreck will be adapted to the screen in the United States.
The film was originally shot in the late 1970s.
Chávez said he wrote the book to highlight the human suffering caused by the sinking of the Titanic in 1912.
The novel is a true story of the ship’s captain, Captain Jack Aubrey, who was one of the first to recognize that he had been betrayed and murdered by his wife.
Chávez’s story centers on the events that led to the tragedy.
Chabon, who won the Pulitzer Prize in 2002 for his memoir “The Catcher in the Rye,” has also been a fixture at the Venice Biennale and is the author of more than 60 novels, including “Cultured” and “In Cold Blood.”
He is currently working on a new book.
