Nick Tapalansky, Kate Glasheen, IDW, and Top Shelf’s A Radical Shift of Gravity is being adapted for film
IDW has joined with Todd Lieberman’s Hidden Pictures to develop the IDW/Top Shelf graphic novel A Radical Shift of Gravity into a feature film. Academy Award nominee Matt Charman will adapt the widely acclaimed science fiction work created by Nick Tapalansky and Kate Glasheen. Charman earned his Best Original Screenplay Oscar nomination for the 2015 film Bridge of Spies.
A Radical Shift of Gravity is a science-fiction fable that explores the ties that bind a family together, the forces that threaten to pull them apart, and the quiet beauty of a world where everyone is floating away. Noah is a father and journalist raising a rebellious daughter facing a massive planetary transformation – their world has begun to lose gravity, a force everyone has always taken for granted. Noah spends his days documenting the wondrous and terrifying shifts all around him as his daughter faces her own challenges of growing older in a radically changing world.
For Hidden Pictures, Todd Lieberman and Alex Young will produce, and David Glickman will executive produce. Paul Davidson, Jonny Gutman, and Julie Winograd will produce on behalf of IDW.
A Library Guild Selection, A Radical Shift of Gravity is critically hailed as a heartfelt and thought-provoking parable that captures the uncertainties of 21st-century life.
