Fargo Man Plans “Fall,” Monster Movies

“Fargo” series co-creator Noah Hawley has sold the film rights to his novel “Before the Fall” to Sony Pictures. Hawley will adapt his novel and produce alongside John Cameron.

The book tells the story of a mysterious private-plane crash in Martha’s Vineyard, and focuses on the two survivors, an artist and a little boy, and the lives of the people who died in the crash. Coincidences that begin to emerge which suggest the flight’s crash may not have been an accident.

Hawley is also reportedly scripting an untitled project at Universal that will be part of that studio’s attempt to create a cinematic universe featuring its classic monsters.
