News: L. A Confidential Sequel in the Works

A sequel to the film L. A. Confidential is reportedly once again in early development. Titled White Jazz, the fourth and final book in James Ellroy's L. A. Quartet series, the screen adaptation follows the misadventures of rogue cop Lt. Dave Klein as he becomes entwined in a violent and treacherous corruption scandal within the LAPD. Joe Carnahan has been signed to direct, and filming is expected to begin in November 2007.

Melbourne native Guy Pearce is in talks with Carnahan to play the role of Det. Lt. Edmund Jennings 'Ed' Exley in the movie, the character he protrayed in L. A. Confidential.
