Casey Affleck has signed on to star in “Stoner,” an adaptation of the John Williams cult novel set up at Blumhouse Pictures.Affleck, long a fan of the 1965 book, will play the titular role of long-suffering academic William Stoner, who is stuck in a loveless marriage and a thankless job.The New Yorker has called the book the “greatest American novel you’ve never heard of,” and called the protagonist the polar opposite of Jay Gatsby, the subject of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s canon classic “The Great Gatsby.” Sounds like a project Affleck would adore.

F. Scott Fitzgerald never fit in in Hollywood, where he came to write screenplays and ended up dying of a heart attack at 44. Maybe it’s fitting that Hollywood has such a tough time figuring out how to adapt his work.This month, for Amazon canceled two projects by the “Great Gatsby” author: “Z: The Beginning of Everything” and “The Last Tycoon.” The Matt Bomer-starring “Tycoon” was Fitzgerald’s final novel, inspired by 1930s Hollywood. “Z” starred Christina Ricci as the author’s wife, Zelda Fitzgerald.“There is a depth to Fitzgerald that Hollywood finds difficult to address,” David S. Brown, Elizabethtown College professor of history and author of “Paradise Lost: A Life of F. Scott Fitzgerald,” told TheWrap.
