Kill Your Darlings Explores Beat Gen

Killer Films has picked up the biopic thriller spec script “Kill Your Darlings” reports Variety.

The story centers on a 1944 murder that brought together a young Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs – the trio of writers that rose to prominence in the late 50’s and were nicknamed the ‘Beat Generation’. Their works (Howl, On the Road, Naked Lunch) served as a precursor to the sixties counterculture movement.

John Krokidas and Austin Bunn penned the screenplay which Krokidas will also direct.
