Alan Glynn's Graveland Optioned for Film

Cinemystery: Crime Novels Adapted for Film

New Regency has optioned Alan Glynn's most recent thriller Graveland for film. Brian Koppelman (Runner Runner, Ocean's Thirteen, Runaway Jury) will write the adapted screenplay for David Levien to direct.

We reviewed Graveland earlier this year, calling it "a solidly written novel with strongly developed characters" but adding that "there's a sense that there might be too much going on here for one book". With some deliberate and creative editing on the part of the screenwriter, we think this would make for a compelling murder mystery thriller film.

More about the book, below.

Graveland by Alan Glynn

A Novel of Suspense

 Read our review of Graveland by Alan Glynn.

On a bright Saturday morning, a Wall Street investment banker is shot dead while jogging in Central Park. Hours later, one of New York City's savviest hedge-fund managers is gunned down outside a restaurant. Are these killings a coordinated terrorist attack, or just a coincidence?

Investigative journalist Ellen Dorsey has a hunch they're neither, and when an attempt is made on the life of another CEO, her theory is confirmed. The story blows wide open, and as Ellen races to stay ahead of the curve, her path collides with that of a recession-hit architect, Frank Bishop, whose daughter's disappearance may be tied to the murders.
