Lenny Abrahamson, award-winning director of Garage, What Richard Did, Adam and Paul and Prosperity is to direct the screen adaptation of Emma Donoghue’s Man Booker nominated novel Room.

Room has sold over 2 and a half million copies worldwide and tells the story of a mother and child held captive in a shed.

If it’s consistency you’re looking for in directing, Lenny arguably, is yer only man.

Fair play though, in fairness.
