According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal Pictures has picked up "Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking", the nonfiction best-seller by Malcolm Gladwell, with Stephen Gaghan adapting and directing and Leonardo DiCaprio attached to star.

Blink, published in January, is a story about rapid cognition, about the kind of thinking that happens in a blink of an eye. Gladwell posited that when you meet someone for the first time, or walk into a house you are thinking of buying, or read the first few sentences of a book, your mind takes about two seconds to jump to a series of conclusions. Blink is a story about those two seconds when instant conclusions reached by people are really powerful, really important and, occasionally, really good.
