Tom Stoppard: 'Not Adapting My Own Plays for Film'


Award-Winning screenwriter and playwright Tom Stoppard, who received the Writers Guild of America, West's 2013 Laurel Award for Film, says he doubts that he would ever adapt any of his own theatrical works for the screen. Having just done Anna Karenina, and working on a project now for HBO, Stoppard said of adapting provocative works like Coast of Utopia or others, "No, I don't see it really. And I'm quite comfortable with that."
