“Elizabeth” and “The Four Feathers” director Shekhar Kapur is set to helm the murder mystery adaptation “London Fields” for Tartan Films and Muse Productions says The Hollywood Reporter.
Based on British author Martin Amis’ 1989 novel, the story follows an American writer living in London who has had writer’s block for twenty years and is now terminally ill.
Other characters include a psychic woman, who meets two men in a bar and senses that one of them will murder her on her 35th birthday.
Both Michael Winterbottom and David Cronenberg have been previously attached as directors. Chris Hanley, Jordan Gertner and Mary Vernieu will produce.
