Pulitzer Winning Novel ‘The Sympathizer’ Being Adapted for TV

Viet Than Nguyen’s debut novel The Sympathizer, winner of the Pulitzer Prize among other awards, is being adapted for television. 

The news broke from the author himself on Twitter that A24 and Rhombus Media have just optioned the rights to the work. The director set for the adaptation, Park Chan-wook, has directorial credits for Oldboy and The Handmaiden. Author Nguyen mentioned in his Tweet that “his OLDBOY was a big influence on The Sympathizer.”

From Amazon, “The Sympathizer is a sweeping epic of love and betrayal. The narrator, a communist double agent, is a “man of two minds,” a half-French, half-Vietnamese army captain who comes to America after the Fall of Saigon, and while building a new life with other Vietnamese refugees in Los Angeles is secretly reporting back to his communist superiors in Vietnam.”
