“Adaline” Helmer Tackles “Blackfriars”

“The Age of Adaline” and “Celeste and Jesse Forever” director Lee Toland Krieger has been hired to helm the dark comedy “Blackfriars” for Lakeshore Entertainment.

The story ties into the real-life 1978 massacre in Boston that left four criminals and a reporter dead. The action follows Boston police officer and a con man-turned-witness, who become unlikely friends hiding out in Bermuda, ultimately perpetrating a con on the Boston DA they were tasked to serve.

Chris Bremner penned the Black List script while Tom Rosenberg, Gary Lucchesi, Brian Goldner and Stephen Davis will produce.
