Billy Ray on Board Conjure Wife

Billy Ray hired to adapt Conjure WifeImagine that your life is going along fine and smooth. Then you find out a lot of your perceived luck is actually the magical interference of your wife, who is a witch. You confront her, she agrees to stop … and all hell breaks loose.

Such is the plot of Fritz Leiber, Jr.’s 1943 novel Conjure Wife, which THR reports United Artists has just signed on Billy Ray to adapt for the big screen. Ray recently directed the FBI thriller Breach but is better known as writer of such films as Suspect Zero and Hart’s War.

This will mark the fourth adaptation of Leiber’s book (the last was 1980’s Witches’ Brew) and will see some lust and body swapping injected into the proceedings to keep things lively.

    I’m there; “Shattered Glass” (which was his directorial debut, Johnny!; IMDb is your friend, good sir. ;)) was amazing.
