Holly Hunter in talks to star in film based on Sue Miller’s novel ‘Monogamy’ – Deadline

EXCLUSIVE: Oscar-winning actress Holly Hunter is in talks to star and produce the feature film adaptation of Sue Miller’s bestselling novel Monogamy.

Killer Films and Yellow Bear Films made a deal for the book, I hear, with Dani Shapiro ready to adapt and produce as well. Miller will serve as the EP.

Published by Harper last September in hardcover with the paperback version on sale today, Monogamy follows the golden couple, Graham and Annie, who remain loyal to each other after nearly 30 years of marriage. Graham is a bookseller, a large gregarious man with great appetites – curious, eager to please, a lover of life, and the friendly host of frequent and lively parties at Annie and Cambridge’s comfortable home in Cambridge. Annie, more reserved and introspective, is a photographer. When Graham dies suddenly – the man whose enormous presence seemed to dominate their life together – Annie is lost. What’s the point of continuing, she wonders, without him? Then, while she still mourns him intensely, she discovers that Graham had been unfaithful to her; and she soars into the darkness, wondering if she ever really knew the man who loved her.

The following novels include three main selections from Book of the Month: Family photos (nominated for a National Book Critics Circle Award), During my absence (a selection from Oprah’s Book Club), and The senator’s wife. Prior to Monogamy, Miller wrote The arsonist. The author’s many honors include a Guggenheim and a Radcliffe Institute Fellowship.

Shapiro is the author of the moment New York Times successful memories, Heritage, which was published in January 2019 by Knopf. His other books include the memoirs Hourglass, Writing again, Devotion, and Slow motion, and five novels including Black White and Family history.
