Director Chosen for Film of "Edgar Mint"

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- Hollywood film studio United Artists has hired director Michael Cuesta to direct an adaptation of Mormon author Brady Udall's novel, "The Miracle Life of Edgar Mint." Cuesta, who is currently being considered for six IFP/West Independent Spirit Awards for his debut film "L.I.E.," will adapt the novel for film along with his brother, Gerald. "Edgar Mint," which was pursued by numerous directors, became something of a cult favorite when it was published last year. Udall was even compared to John Irving and even Charles Dickens because of the book. The story tells of a half-Apache youth who is run over by a mail truck, is raised by a Mormon foster family and joins the LDS Church. The film version is produced by Single Cell Pictures partners Michael Stipe and Sandy Stern.
