Lynne Ramsay's We Need To Talk About Kevin picks up a backer

Variety is reporting that Independent Film Company has picked up the international rights to Morvern Callar director Lynne Ramsay's adaptation of the acclaimed Lionel Shriver novel We Need to Talk About Kevin. Shriver's book is about a mother (to be played by Tilda Swinton) who reflects back on her life after her teenaged son goes on a bloody spree two days before his sixteenth birthday.

We're big Ramsay fans and the subject matter looks compelling so we remain, uncharacteristically, unambiguously optimistic.
