[Movies] Constantin Film Picks up Film Rights for the Book The Dog Stars
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 12.06.2012



Variety reports that Constantin Film is developing a film version of Peter Heller's novel The Dog Stars.

Here's an official synopsis for the book:

"Hig survived the flu that killed everyone he knows. His wife is gone, his friends are dead, he lives in the hangar of a small abandoned airport with his dog, his only neighbor a gun-toting misanthrope. In his 1956 Cessna, Hig flies the perimeter of the airfield or sneaks off to the mountains to fish and pretend that things are the way they used to be. But when a random transmission somehow beams through his radio, the voice ignites a hope deep inside him that a better life–something like his old life–exists beyond the airport. Risking everything, he flies past his point of no return–not enough fuel to get him home–following the trail of the static-broken voice on the radio. But what he encounters and what he must face–in the people he meets, and in himself–is both better and worse than anything he could have hoped for."

Margo Klewans and Robert Kulzer will be producing the film version.
