SynopsisThe project, based on four David Peace novels, will be distributed in the U.S. this fall by IFC. Studio bought rights to the mini and the novel series. The miniseries is a study of power and police corruption framed around the investigation of the disappearance of several young girls. For the pic, the setting will be transferred from Britain to the U.S.
The mini clocked in at more than five hours, so Zaillian and Scott have their work cut out for them to compress it into one film.
