John Grisham's The Testament to be Filmed

The Testament by John Grisham

Variety is reporting that John Grisham has made a movie deal for his 1999 novel The Testament, in which a billionaire defies his greedy relatives and leaves his $11 billion fortune to a mysterious illegitimate daughter doing charity work in the Brazilian wetlands. A down-and-out lawyer helps her battle her relatives over the fortune.

During the 1990s, a string of Grisham bestsellers were filmed: (1996), (1993), (1993), (1994), (1996), and (1997). With The Testament, Grisham adds another title to those already in various stages of development. The Innocent Man, based on Grisham's nonfiction book, is scheduled for a 2011 release; an adaptation of his non-thriller Playing for Pizza is moving forward; and Grisham's most recent thriller, The Associate, has been optioned by Paramount.
