In 2007 producers Brad Fischer and James Vanderbilt brought Zodiac to the screen, based on one of the world’s most infamous serial killers. Up next they’re once again heading into real-life territory, and we’ve got the scoop for ya today. So read on, true crime fiends!
Variety reports that Mythology Entertainment has acquired the rights to Scott Andrew Selby’s book A Serial Killer in Nazi Berlin: The Chilling True Story of the S-Bahn Murderer, and they’re currently developing it as a feature film entitled Blackout.
Mythology has hired Mark Hogan to adapt the book, based on the true story of a serial killer in 1940-1941 Nazi Germany.
The story centers on the hunt for a serial killer in the heart of the Third Reich and the relentless detective who must confront his own murderous regime in order to catch the killer. With Berlin firmly in the grip of panic as British bombers raided the city by night, the government implemented a blackout at night with the only light coming from the phosphorous paint on every street corner, bus, and commuter train.
Mythology’s Jon Silk, who brought the project in, will executive produce and oversee the project.
