Guillermo Del Toro Getting Ready To Runoff?

According to Rich Johnston, and his Lying in the Gutters column, Guillermo del Toro is in talks to secure the film rights to Tom Manning's Runoff. Apparently, del Toro's quote for the book cover was a sweetener in that deal. Here's the quote:

Tom Manning has created a world that is as bizarre as it is recognizable. As scary as it is moving. The terse plotting and vivid characters in Runoff collapse the sweet flavor of Americana into a cyanide capsule that is easy to swallow, easy to like, and hard to survive. May we all get poisoned by Tom more often.

More details in Rich's column.
