But the folks over at the Emergent Village have given us an update on what has been going on with "The Shack," lately. Here is some of the highlights:
- 2.5 million copies sold
- 9 weeks at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list
- Oprah is reading it right now
- a movie adaptation is in the works
- Young has retained creative control to the film so that “Jesus stays in the picture”
eight movie studios had been vying for the rights and already $100 million has been committed to make the film
Finally, I wonder who they'll have playing the female God the Father who is neither male nor female even though he/she is portrayed as a female? Too bad for Morgan Freeman. I'm sure he was interested in the role.
Why not Oprah?
The Emergent Village goes on to point out that the book was even mentioned on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Here is the video:
