Hurston Novel Took Years to Adapt to Film
The film version of Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching Goddebuts on ABC-TV this Sunday. Produced by Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Films, the film took nine years and four writers to adapt for the screen, reports the Boston Globe. The writer who finally found a way to bring the emotional story of love and independence to the screen was the playwright Suzan-Lori Parks, who won the Pulitzer Prize in 2002 for Topdog/Underdog.
