Oscar nominated screenwriter Peter Morgan (The Queen) didn’t always write touching dramas about royalty; at one point he penned a ghostly script called Hereafter, and Dreamworks has optioned the script for a low seven figures. I doubt that includes decimal points…
Variety got the news this morning but unfortunately didn’t do much investigating into what Hereafter is actually about, only stating that it’s a thriller (a word I’m getting very sick of seeing in the trade) in the vein of The Sixth Sense. What a twist!
Morgan is also responsible for Frost/Nixon, The Other Boleyn Girl and The Last King of Scotland. With a resume like that, I have to admit I’m curious how his delving into our genre will turn out. Keep it here for more as we get it!
