Roger Avary penning SANCTUARY
After spending a year in prison for vehicular manslaughter, PULP FICTION scribe Roger Avary is looking to make his way back to the big screen, and in quite a big way.
Deadline is reporting that Avary will pen an adaptation of William Faulkner’s Sanctuary, with BROOKYLN’S FINEST producer John Langley aboard to produce. The story follows a woman named Temple Drake, who becomes entangled in a web of bootleggers, criminals, and murder.
The novel has been turned into a film previously, THE STORY OF TEMPLE DRAKE, a film that this writer has unfortunately not seen. However, what I do know for a fact is that Avary is absolutely the perfect name for a gig like this. With films like FICTION and KILLING ZOE to his name, the world of crime is something not new to the writer, and it is going to be really intriguing to see what he can do back in the world of true blue pulp fiction.
