The Wrap reports that Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and screenwriter Tracy Letts is in negotiations to draft a re-adaptation of John Seinbeck's Pulitzer Prize-winning book, The Grapes of Wrath.
The book was previously adapted for the screen in 1940 by director John Ford. The story follows the Joads, a poor farming family, during the Great Depression.
Steven Spielberg is producing, not directing, the adaptation, though he did recently exit American Sniper. Letts also works as an actor and will soon be appearing on Homeland as a Senator.
