Focus Features has struck a deal with producers David Heyman, Corey May and Dooma Wendschuh to finance and distribute the screen adaptation of the author Carolyn Parkhurst's best-selling debut novel "The Dogs of Babel." Published last summer, the book centers on a linguistics professor whose wife dies after falling from a tree. The man becomes obsessed with teaching their dog--a Rhodesian Ridgeback that was the sole witness to the tragedy to speak in order to learn whether her death was an accident or suicide.
