More Casting News for TNT's Tuesday Night Mystery Movie

TNT: We Know Drama

Last May, TNT announced it was adapting a series of crime books for a new series of made-for-television adaptations called TNT Tuesday Night Mystery. (The name has since been changed to the slightly more clunky TNT Tuesday Night Mystery Movie.)

Last week, we learned that Bill Pullman has been cast as Rusty Sabich in the first of these movies, Innocent, adapted from the Scott Turow legal thriller of the same title, and set 22 years after the events of Presumed Innocent, a theatrical hit that starred Harrison Ford as Sabich. Innocent is set to premiere this coming November.

Today we're learning that John Corbett will star as Savannah cop Duncan Hatcher in an adaptation of Sandra Brown's 2006 thriller Ricochet. Julie Benz co-stars as Elise Laird, who is married to a prominent judge and who supposedly kills an intruder in self-defense.

The four other books slated to be adapted are Richard North Patterson’s Silent Witness; Lisa Gardner’s Hide; April Smith’s Good Morning, Killer; and Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark’s Deck the Halls.
