I was only familiar with Fisher Stevens from the 1986 film, Short Circuit, so imagine my surprise when I watched the heart-wrenching and Academy Award-winning documentary, The Cove, and discovered Stevens was a co-director. It looks like Stevens will step back behind the camera once again for an adaptation of Philip Roth’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, American Pastoral. This fictionalized account follows the protagonist, Seymour “Swede” Levov, who not only achieves the American dream, but loses it in dramatic fashion when his daughter becomes a political activist and terrorist during the Vietnam War. American Pastoral, adapted by John Romano (The Lincoln Lawyer) is set to start principal photography early next year. Hit the jump for more.
