Nina Jacobson and her production company Color Force has picked up the rights to Donna Tartt’s bestselling novel The Goldfinch which was released in 2013. Tartt’s previous novel The Little Friend was published to wide acclaim in 2002.


Color Force is the juggernaut behind the adaptation of Suzanne Collins's The Hunger Games trilogy starring Jennifer Lawrence.

Jacobson told The Wrap The Goldfinch has been one of the most popular books in the U.S. and U.K. since its debut last fall, and is still second on the New York Times best-seller list.

It has not yet been confirmed whether the adaptation will be a feature length film or TV series.

Tartt’s central character Theo Decker is the 13 year old son of a devoted mother and a reckless, largely absent father who survives an accident that otherwise tears his life apart. Alone and rudderless in New York, he is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. He is tormented by an unbearable longing for his mother, and down the years clings to the thing that most reminds him of her: a small, strangely captivating painting that ultimately draws him into the criminal underworld. As he grows up, Theo learns to glide between the drawing rooms of the rich and the dusty antiques store where he works. He is alienated and in love - and his talisman, the painting, places him at the centre of a narrowing, ever more dangerous circle.

Jacobson is currently on set in Atlanta finishing work on the last two installments of The Hunger Games, Mockingjay 1 & 2.
