Saw this at Publisher's Lunch:

RANDOM'S MOVIE HOUSE: "Reservation Road," Random House's entrance into the movie business, by way of a 2005 deal to invest in film versions of its books through NBC Universal specialty division Focus Features, is scheduled to hit theaters this fall, the Wall Street Journal reports (link, subscription required for most content). The movie version of John Burnham Scwartz's book was directed by Terry George ("Hotel Rwanda"). The publisher's strategy is not so much to make money off movies and DVDs but to sell more books. Projects in development include Ross Macdonald's "The Galton Case"; Yasmina Khadra's "The Attack"; Dean Koontz's "The Husband" and the coming nonfiction book "Curveball: Spies, Lies, and the Man Behind Them: How America Went to War in Iraq," by LAT correspondent Bob Drogin.
