Now Sundance Wants A Visit From the Goon Squad

Back in 2011, just a day after it won the Pulitzer, Jennifer Egan's A Visit From the Goon Squad was optioned for development by HBO. Now two years later, with no series to be seen, Sundance is reportedly in talks to pick up where HBO left off. Will the book be any more filmable than it was two years ago? Because even back then, people were unconvinced it could be properly adapted: "I don’t envy them the job, I’ll tell you that," Egan even told the New York Times' David Itzkoff shortly after the HBO deal was first announced.
