Atlanta Producer Ed Richardson, one of the Founders and Managing Partner of Atlanta Metro Studios, is now in active development on a feature film adaptation of Georgia native Flannery O’Connor’s A Good Man Is Hard To Find. Richardson, also the owner of Atlanta based R&R Productions Worldwide, is producing with Mike Sears (A WARRIORS HEART) and David Zander (SPRING BREAKERS).
At the time of her death, the Atlanta Journal observed that Miss O’Connor’s “deep spirituality qualified her to speak with a forcefulness not often matched in American literature.” She was a master of Southern Gothic literature and in the early fifties was known for the shockingly violent nature of her fiction, at the time deemed by many to be “grotesque”. But Richardson notes, “It wasn’t just violence for the sake of violence, and her writings offered salvation for all… even us misfits”. In Miss O’Connor’s own words, “Violence is strangely capable of returning my characters to reality and preparing them to accept their moment of grace.”
