You heard it first on FanBolt, but now the news is spreading and the Flannery O’Connor film adaptation that is being produced by Atlanta film producer Ed Richardson (founder and managing partner of Atlanta Metro Studios) is getting more press!
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution picked up the story and spoke with Richardson about the current state of the project. We have a highlight below.
“I don’t know if haunted is the right word,” said movie producer Ed Richardson. “I have never gotten this story out of my head since I was a kid.”
Richardson, 48, owner of Atlanta production facility R&R Productions Worldwide, is talking about that deeply disturbing Flannery O’Connor short story “A Good Man is Hard to Find.”
The way Richardson describes it, he’s been seeing a Flannery O’Connor movie inside his head since he was a grade-schooler in north Louisiana.
