Into the Light

Fox 2000 has bought screen rights to Into the Light, a book Robert Kurson is writing about Michael May, a man who was blind since childhood but had the chance to regain his sight thanks to advancements in stem cell surgery.

Variety says Kurson won't be done with his book for Random House until next year, but Hollywood got a taste of the story when the author wrote about May's unlikely tale in the current issue of Esquire. May's life rights come as part of the deal.

Kurson previously sold "Shadow Divers: The True Adventures of Two Americans Who Discovered Hitler's Lost Sub" to Fox 2000. Jarhead screenwriter William Broyles Jr. is adapting that book.

You can read more about May's experience of regaining his sight at this CBS article from almost two years ago.
