Blink: The Movie

BlinkHere’s something we learned last week in LA: Blink, the best-seller from TED favorite Malcolm Gladwell, will be made into a feature film, adapted/directed by Stephen Gaghan (“Traffic”), and starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Gladwell will stay involved as executive producer. We’re great fans of Blink — and, let’s face it, just about anything Gladwell writes — so we were curious to hear what he had in mind for the movie. He tells us, “It takes a single character from Blink — Silvan Tompkins — and fashions an entirely new story around him, about what it means to be someone who can read other people’s thoughts.” Our snap judgment says: Success.
