Warner Bros. has plans to adapt Donna Tartt's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Goldfinch. Although they haven't acquired the rights as of yet, the studio is the frontrunner after putting in a competitive offer.

The story follows Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New Yorker, who survives an accident that kills his mother. He survives the tragedy and steals Carel Fabritius' famous painting The Goldfinch. Eventually, he is adopted by a wealthy Manhattan family. Years later, he reunites with his alcoholic father, who takes him to Las Vegas as he tries to unravel a mystery.

The project was originally being targeted as a TV miniseries, but if Warner Bros. secures the rights they will adapt the novel into a feature film. No production date or casting details have been released.
