BBC News is reporting that supermarket giant Tesco has formed a joint venture with Amber Entertainment to make direct-to-DVD films that will be exclusive to the retailer. First up is Paris Connections, an adaptation of the Jackie Collins quartet of thrillers Power, Obsession, Murder, and Revenge, and collectively published as L. A. Connections. It is currently being filmed in France, and is expected to be the first of four planned movies in the "Connections" series.
Other best-selling authors reportedly in talks with Tesco for film adaptations include Philip Pullman, Judy Blume, Dick and Felix Francis, Karin Slaughter, Jacqueline Wilson, and Anne Perry.
