British company Archery Pictures, led by Lisa Marshall and Chris Tiquier, have received the rights to adapt "Rattle", the debut novel by former Daily Mirror reporter Fiona Cummins, into a television series. This is reported by Deadline.
Dark and gripping, the novel follows a sinister bone collector who treats his "museum" with great trepidation and obsession. It looks like it's time for a new crop, and Detective Etta Fitzroy has a chance to hunt down the psychopath before he can add to his collection.
The book has hit the spotlight during this year's book fairs given the large demand for multifaceted leading female characters. The book will be published in the UK by Pan Macmillan in 2017.
"Fiona's book is terrific reading, impossible to tear yourself away from," Marshall said in a statement. "It's a gripping thriller that, however, raises family issues in the most engaging and provocative way. I think the novel will make a stunning series. ".
Archery Pictures, created over a year ago by renowned British producers Marshall and Tiquier, is engaged in the production of international feature and television projects. The company is developing the television crime drama "Riviera", which features Neil Jordan ("Borgia") as writer, director and showrunner. The original idea came from former U2 manager Paul McGuinness and John Banville ("Mysterious Albert Nobbs").
