In some perhaps welcome news, the screen is coming to books instead of the other way around.
Director Quentin Tarantino, it was announced yesterday, will be publishing two books, one of which is an adaptation of one of his movies.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, based on the 2019 movie of the same name, is expected out on June 29, 2021, and “offers a fresh departure as it follows his characters backward and forward in time,” per the announcement.
Tarantino’s publishing deal also includes a nonfiction work, Cinema Speculation, which is “a deep dive into the movies of the 1970s.”
Literary Hub, which shared the Tarantino news, also reports that an actor from the beloved TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer has launched a historical fantasy series about William Shakespeare's lost years.
Armin Shimerman, who played Principal R. Snyder, released Betrayal of Angels (Illyria) a few months ago.
According to its marketing materials, the novel is “a researched, fantastical literary romp featuring Elizabethan court intrigue, the comedic characters of Twelfth Night, and crackling dialogue that evokes the language of Shakespeare.”
