Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude will finally be adapted for the screen, with Netflix announcing it had acquired the rights today.
The novelist’s sons, Rodrigo and Gonzalo, believed the timing was finally right, with the rise in series and limited series, Rodrigo told the New York Times.
An additional factor: Netflix's established reputation for producing quality foreign-language works with subtitles that English-speaking audiences are willing to watch.
Most of the information about the adaptation is still very general at this point, but you can learn more about the plans in the New York Times.
