Those Who Wish Me Dead Are Heading to Theaters!
Well, not me personally. That would be kind of cool though... could round them all up in one place and then start dropping elbows like a madman. But I digress; what we're talking about here is another adaptation that's on its way from 20th Century Fox.
Deadline reports that Charles Leavitt has just landed another high-profile adaptation gig, Those Who Wish Me Dead, which Steve Zaillian’s Film Rites is producing.
The project has been out to several top guys since Fox acquired rights to the thriller last fall, and it was Blood Diamond scribe Leavitt’s take that impressed them the most.
The novel revolves around a teenage murder witness lost in the Montana wilderness, the twin assassins hunting him, a survival expert tasked with protecting him, and a forest fire that threatens to consume them all. Little Brown publishes the book in May.
More on this one soon!
