News: HBO to Film Walter Mosley's Little Scarlett

Variety is reporting that Walter Mosley is adapting his Easy Rawlins mystery, Little Scarlett, for the screen. Jeffrey Wright and Mos Def have signed on to star in the HBO Films and Picturehouse production.

Easy Rawlins returns to solve a mystery in Little Scarlett, set amid the flames of the hottest summer Los Angeles has ever seen . Just after devastating riots tear through the city in 1965 - when anger is high and fear still smolders everywhere - the police turn up at Easy Rawlins's doorstep. He expects the worst, as usual. But they've come to ask for his help.

Mosley is writing the script; of the two lead roles (Rawlins, an unlicensed private eye, and Mouse, a killer who helps Rawlins crack cases), Wright and Def haven't decided who will play which character. There's no production schedule set for Little Scarlet.
