Today’s Question by Aart Hilal

Are you going to get involve with the writing of the script for the movie Warner Bros are planning to make after The Alchemist? When it is going to be released, what will the casting be?


One of my few regrets in life is that I sold the rights of one of my books. It was the beginning of my international career, and I had no experience at all. Yesterday I saw an interview with Julia Roberts about me, and she says: “I hope that Paulo Coelho never sells the rights of his books to movies. The magic of his books is in the words and sentences.” I totally agree with her.
