‘Kick-Ass’ Scribe Tackles London Serial Killer, ‘Golem’

I was truly happy with Jane Goldman’s adaptation of “Kick-Ass” for Lionsgate. Other than the finale, she was able to keep the essence of the comic in true form. So I guess this comes as good news for fans of Peter Ackroyd’s tome Dan Leno and the Limehouse Golem as Goldman will be adapting for Stephen Woolley and Elizabeth Karlsen’s London-based Number 9 Films.

The crime story, set up with Film4 and the U.K. Film Council, is set against the music halls of Victorian London and follows a Jack-the Ripper-style serial killer nicknamed the Limehouse Golem and the rise and fall of a vaudeville star.

Blighty-born Goldman’s scriptwriting credits also include Stardust, The Debt and upcoming releases The Woman in Black and X-Men: First Class.

Number 9 is also in talks with helmer Neil Jordan (Interview With the Vampire) to direct Byzantium, based on Moira Buffini’s eponymous play. Pic is about a pair of women who claim to be vampire siblings.
