Film Adaptation of Graphic Novel Miss: Better Living through Crime Planned

Miss: Better Living Through Crime by Philippe Thirault

Variety is reporting that the 2002 graphic novel Miss: Better Living Through Crime, written by Philippe Thirault and illustrated by Marc Riou and Mark Vigouroux, is being adapted for the big screen. Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Tears of the Sun, Brooklyn's Finest) will direct the John Ridley adaptation with Spike Lee producing.

About the book: We called them "the crazy years‚" New York City was spreading like a pool of urine across a subway platform. Even rats caught diseases there. Welcome to the world of Miss, a bold new journey into crime graphic novels. Set during the early 1900s in New York, Miss tells the tale of two unlikely partners in crime, Enola and Slim. Enola is a poor white girl who has learned to survive by hook or by crook since being expelled from the orphanage. Slim is a black pimp with an uncertain past, trying to keep one foot out of the grave. When their paths cross, and their options run out, Enola and Slim forge a partnership as murderers for hire. This is their story ... what it takes to survive when all you have is a gun.
