New Cormac McCarthy movies

first edition cover

Good news. Two more Cormac McCarthy novels, Cities of the Plains and Blood Meridian, are scheduled to be filmed in 2012 and 2011, respectively.

This bodes well for his Border trilogy being filmed complete. There hasn’t been a novelist who has had such a string of successful films from his novels  in my memory. We can  hope these two movies are done as well as All the Pretty Horses, No Country for Old Men and The Road. See the McCarthy website here.

McCarthy wisely decamped from Knoxville in mid-life and hid away in El Paso where he found a city, a landscape and a people, past and present, that were equal to his majestically precise prose.
