Rocco Not Hunting A Killer

The trades yesterday reported that director Marc Rocco (“Murder in the First”) was set to direct an adaptation of Jim Thompson’s 1952 book “The Killer Inside Me”.

There’s one problem though, the film’s producer Chris Hanley tells IGN Filmforce that Rocco has nothing to do with the project.

“…Nor had I been aware until the article came out of the director Mark Rocco being associated in any way to the property that I have had the direct motion picture book rights with the estate of Jim Thompson for well more than ten years” says Hanley.

Hanley added that he has been working with director John Curran (“We Don’t Live Here Anymore”, “The Painted Veil”) on the project in recent months.
