Adventures of Huckleberry Finn: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Always up for a good book, Scott Rudin is turning his attention to Mark Twain Adventures of Huckleberry Finn for Paramount Pictures.

Michael Tolkin and Roger Michell are in negotiations to adapt and direct a period adaptation of the classic book with a focus on its racial issues.

The idea to revive the classic came from Michell, who took it to Rudin and Tolkin, both of whom he worked with on Changing Lanes.
