Every Cloud Productions has confirmed that the script is done and financing is still being pursued for a film adaptation of the Australian period female detective series “Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries” which has been a worldwide success on Netflix.
The production company took to Facebook late last week to unveil a photo of series stars Essie Davis (Phryne Fisher) and Nathan Page (Jack) holding copies of the script for the film which is titled “Miss Fisher & The Crypt of Tears”.
“Miss Fisher” creators Deb Cox and Fiona Eagger have plans for a movie trilogy with her character going on cases around the world. The films would shoot in London, accommodating “The Babadook” star Davis’ relocation there with her director husband Justin Kurzel, with the hope of filming kicking off before year’s end.
Thirty-four episodes of the series have been produced across three seasons, the last episode airing mid-2015. Those involved have indicated they’re more than happy to reunite for more, it’s more a matter of logistics and money at this point than anything else.
Eagger and Cox are also developing a prequel TV spin-off tentatively titled “Miss Fisher’s First Murder Mysteries” which follows an eighteen-year-old version of Phryne on some of her first mysteries including saving her best friend from Melbourne is charged with murder and sentenced to be executed.
