Steve Buscemi to Direct Queer

Here’s a bit of Beat news that might interest you…

Apparently Steve Buscemi has been linked with directing a movie adaptation of William S. Burroughs’ novel, Queer. This is a story that has been floating around for years, but now it appears to have gained momentum.

On Friday night Buscemi and several other actors took to the stage at Florida Studio Theatre to read the screenplay in front of an audience. The screenplay was written by Oren Moverman.

Buscemi told the audience that he had visited Burroughs weeks before the author’s death to gain his approval of the film project.
