Wonderful News to Share with You!
Book to Film

Bryan Cranston, Helen Mirren and John Goodman will star in the movie Trumbo, to be released on November 6th, 2015 by Bleecker Street Media
Based on Dalton Trumbo, the book, written by Bruce Cook (1932-2003), it was first published by Scribner in 1977.
After great interest from multiple publishers, Linda is delighted to have resold the book  Trumbo to Grand Central Publishing, The Hachette Book Group, for publication in time for the film's release, on behalf of Bruce Cook's widow, Judith Aller.
Grand Central Publishing will be releasing  Trumbo with two stunning new front covers, one as shown, and a further cover depicting the artwork from the movie.


Dalton Trumbo, considered one of the greatest screenwriter of his time, saw his career come to a grinding halt when he was blacklisted after he refused to testify before the House Un-American 
Activities Committee (HUAC). He was one of the so-called "Hollywood Ten" in 1947 during the Committee's investigation of communist influences in the nation. He spent ten months in jail but continued writing under pseudonyms, during which time he won two Academy Awards and two Oscars for The Brave One  and Roman Holiday under different names. He resumed his career under his own name after the blacklist effectively ended in 1960. His other credits include Papillon , Spartacus and Exodus.
Dalton Trumbo wrote Johnny Got His Gun one of the most powerful anti-war novels ever published, which won one of the early National Book Awards.

Bruce Cook   (1932-2003) wrote this book with Dalton Trumbo's full cooperation after many hours of interviews with him. Under the name Bruce Alexander,
Bruce Cook
Cook wrote two crime/mystery series. One, a series of mystery novels featuring the real-life historical figure, Sir John Fielding. The other, a series of mystery/thrillers  featuring Mexican American private detective Chico Cervantes.  Bruce Cook wrote a total of 23 books, both fiction and non-fiction, all commercially published . His books have been warmly praised by critics and named "Best Book of the Year", "Most Notable Book of the Year" by The New York Times, Publishers Weekly and The Chicago Tribune.

Praise from Bruce Cook's widow, Judith Aller.  Thank you, Judith, for your kind words. It has been such a pleasure to find you the perfect publisher!

is a rare find for any author. Why? Because the   combination of marketing and sales is the key to understanding an author's needs in the publishing world of today. And Langton International Agency has it all right on the money, the marketing experience and the instinct in knowing where a good book belongs."
