Novelist Seeks User-Generated Adaptation of His Novel

Novelist Paulo Coelho is taking an undtraditional route in having his books adapted, rather then approaching a studio, he’s turned to his fans on MySpace. He’s asked the internet to create films based on his novel ‘The Witch of Portobello.’ His hopes for the experiment that he can eventually air the best submissions on television.

The book is divided into 15 narrators, who interact and interpret the lead character of the book. He’s calling the project “The Experimental Witch.” The whole project seems pretty fascinating, who knows how it will turn out, quality on the internet ranges from film like to shot with a webcam, I’m not that familiar with Coelho’s novels, but, I definitely love his idea, and who knows, its a good way to discover potentially good talent.
