Sideways became the basis for Alexander Payne/Fox Searchlight release of 2004. The film was nominated for five Academy Awards, winning the Oscar for best adapted screenplay. It also won the prestigious Writers Guild Award for best adapted screenplay, two Golden Globe Awards for best screenplay and best picture (musical or comedy), five New York Film Critics Circle Awards, including best picture and best screenplay, five Los Angeles Film Critics Awards, again including best picture and best screenplay. It swept the Indie Spirit Awards with six wins and won too many other year-end awards to enumerate here. In all it won a total of 350 year-end awards in all categories. Rex's novel has sold over 150,000 copies and has been translated into twelve languages. In 2008, the Writers Guild of America voted it one of 101 Greatest Screenplays of all time.
Rex has just come out with the follow-up to Sideways. The novel had a long gestation, beginning with a book deal with Alfred A. Knopf -- the literary division of Random House. There were serious creative differences when Rex decided he wanted to write the Sideways sequel. So, in frustration, Rex found equity funding from a private investor, Tim Moore, and decided to go the intrepid self-imprint route. The result is Vertical, a tragi-comic epic road novel that saw its realease January 10, 2011.
