Who’s behind it?

A24 and Scott Rudin Production own the television rights to Shuggie Bain and have plans to adapt the novel for television.

Author Douglas Stuart intends to adapt his novel for the screen, which is based on his own childhood growing up in the 1980’s in Glasgow.

From Stuart: ““I am thrilled to be partnering with A24 and Scott Rudin Productions in bringing Shuggie Bain to the screen. I often thought of the book in cinematic terms, and the glamourous, calamitous Agnes Bain certainly believes herself to be the star of her own movie. This is a chance to show the city of Glasgow with all her tenacity and unsinkable spirit, and to celebrate the love and hope between Shuggie and Agnes.”
