Sony to Adapt John Burdett's Sonchai Jitpleecheep Crime Novels?

Bangkok Tattoo by John Burdett

File this under pure speculation.

Two days ago Sony registered dozens of domain names consisting of variations on book titles by John Burdett, with the notable exception of the first in the series, Bangkok 8, which was optioned separately back in 2007 by Millennium Films (though no film adaptation was ever made).

This is leading some to conclude that a deal has been struck between Sony and the author to adapt the subsequent books in the series, including the yet to be published fifth book, Vulture Peak (Knopf, January 2012 hardcover), though there has been no confirmation of such from the studio or the author.

Burdett's crime novels feature Royal Thai Police Detective Sonchai Jitpleecheep.
