Three Murder Mystery Short Stories Optioned for Film

Cinemystery

The Risky Business blog of The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that independent production company Roberts/David Films has optioned three short stories that it intends to weave together into a multi-tiered film titled The Thrillers involving a murder in Los Angeles committed by a celebrity.

The short stories, all of which involve murder, are "Killing Bernstein" by Harlan Ellison (which originally appeared in Ellison's 1978 collection Strange Wine), "The Method" by Janet Fitch (which originally appeared in the anthology Los Angeles Noir), and "Hot Springs" by James Crumley (which originally appeared in Otto Penzler's Murder for Love anthology, published in 1999).

“Pre-awareness is more important than ever in indie film,” says Roberts/David’s Mark Roberts, who will executive produce the project. “By combining these three amazing authors with talented indie filmmakers, we create a product that will have a built-in audience.”
