Sony Pictures has acquired screen rights to The Rosie Project, the publishing phenomenon penned by Australian Graeme Simsion. The film will be produced by Sony-based Matt Tolmach and Michael Costigan. Graeme Simsion will write the script (the book was initially written as a screenplay).

The Rosie Project was first published by Text in Australia in February, with rights sold to 30 countries. It has just been released in the UK by Penguin and will be released in the US by Simon & Schuster in October.

You can listen to an interview with Graeme Simsion here as he eludes to a possible film adaptation before the official announcement.
