Patrick Dempsey has signed on as the lead in Good Films’ The Postcard Killings, directed by Janusz Kaminski from a script by Andrew Stern, says by Deadline.
Based on James Patterson and Liza Marklund’s novel, “The film is about New York detective Jacob Kanon (Dempsey), who investigates the murder of his newly married daughter and discovers a trail of similar crimes reported throughout Europe — each killing accompanied by a postcard delivered to a local reporter.”
Production is scheduled to begin in February. Good Universe is handling international sales on the project, which it will present at AFM this week.
Dempsey also will executive produce under his Shifting Gears Entertainment production banner. Good Universe and UTA Independent Film Group are handling domestic rights on the pic.
