Perth-based author Dervla McTiernan’s debut novel The Rúin is to be adapted for the big screen.

The Rúin is the first in McTiernan’s Irish crime series about detective Cormac Reilly, with the follow-up novel, The Scholar, published earlier this year, and a third, A Good Turn, to be published in 2020.

The Rúin, which has sold internationally and been on the shortlist of several awards, is to be the first project for Chapel Place Productions, run by Colin Farrell and his sister, Claudine Farrell. They will partner with Australia’s Hopscotch Features to produce the film.
