Though it was just released earlier this month, we’ve learned that Jack Reher (Wet House, Red Machine) has already closed a deal to adapt Jon Bassoff’s Corrosion into a feature film. The novel has been swooping up lots of critical acclaim, New York Magazine deeming it “brilliant.”
Details about the adaptation are scant at the moment, but you can read the book’s plot below to get an idea of what you can expect from it.
We’ll report more as we learn more.
A mysterious Iraq war veteran with a horribly scarred face… A disturbed young man in a strange mountain town… A masked preacher with a terrible secret… Amidst a firestorm of violence, betrayal, and horror, their three worlds will eventually collide in an old mining shack buried deep in the mountains. Corrosion, the shattering debut novel by Jon Bassoff, is equal parts Jim Thompson, Flannery O’Connor, and William Faulkner and an unforgettable journey into the underbelly of crime and passion. Drawn from the darkest corners of the human experience, it is sure to haunt readers for years to come.
