Variety doesn't mention who will be adapting the novel, but considering the fact that the author has also written for television (including Deadwood), I wouldn't be surprised if he adapts it himself. A cinematographer is also in place -- Christopher Doyle -- who has a much better track record than the director. Doyle's previous work includes The Quiet American, Hero, 2046 and Lady in the Water. The guy also directed a segment of Paris, je t'aime. It's enough to make me curious. Chechik has done well with wild stories before, and it should be pretty stylish with Doyle attached. And really, it wouldn't be hard for Pomona to be an improvement; The Avengers has an embarrassing 3.3/10 rating on IMDb, from 15,357 votes.
