Mendes to Direct Middlemarch

Sam Mendes (married to beautiful Kate Winslet... and director of a few little films such as American Beauty and Jarhead) will be directing a film adaptation of Middlemarch, the incredibly long novel by George Eliot. I really enjoyed Middlemarch, truly I did, but I also had to cut the book in half so I could take the second part of it along with me on a flight as the whole thing didn't fit into my purse. Not shocking is the fact that Andrew Davies will be adapting the novel for the screen.
