Drive to the Big Screen

Variety reports that Universal Studios has bought the James Sallis novel DRIVE as a feature film vehicle for Hugh Jackman. This is a coup not only for Sallis, but for Poisoned Pen, the small Phoenix-based press which published the widely-acclaimed novella. Sallis is also the author of the Lew Griffin PI tales set in New Orleans.

In other mystery/thriller book news in the trades today, Paramount Pictures has hired X-MEN scribe David Hayter  to adapt Bob Reiss’ soon-to-be-published novel BLACK MONDAY for the screen.
