Broad Green Pictures has reportedly acquired the film rights to the John Leake true crime novel “Entering Hades” which will be shaped as a potential Michael Fassbender vehicle.
The story follows Jack Unterweger, a celebrated Austrian journalist and author who led a double life investigating murders by day and killing by night – amassing a body count of eleven people across multiple continents.
Oscar-winning “Birdman” scribe Alexander Dinelaris will pen a new draft of the script, taking over from Bill Wheeler. Conor McCaughan, Daniel Emmerson, Bob Cooper and Richard Saperstein will produce.
Fassbender is currently shooting Ridley Scott’s “Alien: Covenant” In Sydney.
