A Griffin Flies In Parallel

Parallel Entertainment Pictures (“Delta Farce”) has acquired film rights to “Drive” novelist James Sallis’ series of Lew Griffin crime novels.

Griffin is a New Orleans-based, world-weary, African-American literature professor and former private investigator who works to unravel missing-persons cases while battling his own personal demons.

The books includes such titles as “Long Legged Fly,” “Moth,” “Black Hornet,” “Eye of the Cricket,” “Bluebottle” and “Ghost of a Flea.”

Parallel plan to develop the series as feature film adaptations and is in discussions with several actors about it.
