"CANNES. Alex Schulmans succéroman ”Burn all my letters” becomes a movie."
"– It is really fun, it gets incredibly exciting, the author says to Aftonbladet."
"It's SF Studios who purchased the rights to Alex Schulmans novel, which has sold over 100 000 copies. Now it has just come out in paperback."
"– when I wrote the book, I felt that the story was a bit cinematic. During the winter, started the production company, inquire for, in total there were six of them, we had meetings, at last, I thought the SF Studios had the most clear idea on how to villa filming it, " says Alex Schulman on the phone."
"Intense love story"
"It's a personal story for him, for it is based on authentic letters and dagboksutdrag from his grandmother, Karin Stolpe (1907-2003). "
"in the Summer of 1932, she had a short but intense love story with Olof Lagercrantz (1911-2002), then unknown, later, one of the country's leading publishers – but she was married to Sven Stolpe (1905-1996), already known to the author."
"the Title is ”Burn all my letters”. Wanted your grandmother really to this would be told?"
"– Then she was terrified of Sven Stolpe would get sight of the letters and the handwriting. However, if the right to tell the story of the day... I think she would have been happy for the book, it is, of course, on her side, a kind of redress for her.nAlex Schulman will be involved in the movie-making process, but does not write the script. Any director is not yet appointed. Not an actor either."
"– But it seems to be good momentum on the project. Don't think it gets any out. And yes, we talked about lots of the actor. But I think SF will be mad at me if I start to name names."
"”Lustmördades before all of the SF bosses '"
"For about a dozen years ago, he wrote and poddpartnern Sigge Eklund a screenplay, also for SF."
"– It lustmördades in the face of all SF-managers of an american playwright, then we heard never of the film again. Now I get to go to Cannes on Monday. SF Studios to have a dinner and I hope to get to see a bit of the craziness around the red carpet."
"– When I saw the Netflix series ”Greatest of all” had the Malin Giolito Persson (book author) a small, small role. So now I'm going to pester to get to play the receptionist at the Sigtuna Stadshotell, or something like this, " says Alex Schulman."
