According to Variety Stephen Woolley and Elizabeth Karlsen's London-based Number 9 Films is developing an adaptation of Peter Ackroyd's tome Dan Leno and the Limehouse Golem with Kick-Ass scribe Jane Goldman.
The crime story, set up with Film4 and the U.K. Film Council, is set against the music halls of Victorian London and follows a Jack-the Ripper-style serial killer nicknamed the Limehouse Golem and the rise and fall of a vaudeville star.
Blighty-born Goldman's scriptwriting credits also include Stardust, The Debt and upcoming releases The Woman in Black and X-Men: First Class.
