While time wasting on Facebook, I saw that author Mark Z. Danielewski was taking questions on Twitter. I immediately jumped at the opportunity. In a haste, I decided to go for a question that most House of Leaves fans have been pondering. What does Danielewski think of bringing his novel to the big screen? Is it even possible? Would he approve?

Below you will find the answers that you seek:

There you have it in 140 characters or less. Personally, I'm glad he keeps resisting. As I told him in my response, while I know people would like to see an adaptation, I think it's perfect and unspoiled in its current form.

I've always thought that to bring this novel to life, the approach would need to be not so much to adapt the novel but to do to the cinema art form the equivalent - whatever that may be - of what this novel did to the novel art form.

David Lynch, Peter Greenaway, Terry Gilliam and Charlie Kaufmann are the directors that come to mind, but I'd be just find if i never saw an adaptation.
