Tan’s ‘Rubik’ optioned for film

Brio Books has sold the film option to Elizabeth Tan’s debut novel Rubik to Australian production company Photoplay.

Photoplay develops projects in film, television, web and virtual reality, and is known for its work as executive producer of feature films Sweet Country, Goldstone and Berlin Syndrome.

Photoplay head of development Nicole Dade called Rubik ‘a mesmerising novel that embraces satire, mystery, sci fi and fantasy’, adding, ‘Photoplay is excited about creating a bold and compelling screen adaptation that reflects our technological anxiety and the complexity of the digital age.’

Rights to Rubik—a novel-in-stories that ‘slips outside the borders of realism into a lyrical, science-fictiony world’—have already sold to the US and Canada via Rachel Crawford at Wolf Literary Services.
