Mark Ruffalo to star in adaptation of Blindness, directed by Fernando Meirelles. Ruffalo, Meirelles and Saramago. This could be quite exciting.

Am I alone in thinking that a film adaptation of Blindness sounds kind of... impossible? Any efforts to accurately present the story onscreen would have a pretty robust irony to contend with, namely: how do you portray a totally non-visual narrative—a narrative about not seeing—visually? Not that I don't trust this team, but the only conceivably faithful film adaptation of the novel would be two hours of blank white screen with a bunch of hysterical shouting on the soundtrack.

Good point, Will. Let's get together and make such an adaptation and post it on YouTube. I bet we could get Vincent Gallo to help.
