Before writer Graham Moore wrote the screenplay for The Imitation Game, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley, and won the Oscar last month for best adapted screenplay, he wrote a novel, The Sherlockian. It’s a story about Arthur Conan Doyle at the beginning of the 20th century and a group of investigators trying to track down a lost diary of Doyle’s more than 100 years later.

Graham Moore describes how he convinced the producers of The Imitation Game to let him tackle the movie script -- by giving them a copy of The Sherlockian. (Hat tip to my friend Jared Gilbert, who posted the link in the comments.)
