Michael Cunningham, author of The Hours, will reteam with Scott Rudin, the out producer of that novel's film version, on Specimen Days, the screen version of Cunningham's soon-to-be-published new novel, reports Variety. Like The Hours, Specimen Days tells three stories that are all connected by a writer--in this case, gay poet Walt Whitman. The novellas are respectively set in the past, present, and future. The book is set to be published in May.
