Ken Bruen's LONDON BOULEVARD
My favorite Ken Bruen stand-alone, London Boulevard, will start filming soon, and I could not be more thrilled with the names attached to the project:
Writing & directing: William Monahan, Oscar-winning screenwriter of The Departed
Starring: Colin Farrell (who deservedly won a Golden Globe as a guilt-stricken hitman in last year's In Bruges) and Keira Knightley
Ken himself says: "I'm just delighted... I think the casting is brilliant and the screenplay by Bill Monahan is terrific."
Though out of print at the moment, rest assured that St. Martin's will be reprinting London Boulevard this fall. I'm not sure if the Do-Not Press U.K. edition is still available, but it's worth a shot... click here.
