Per Deadline, the new shingle Paradise City will produce an adaptation of Joe Lansdale’s novel The Bottoms. Even better news? Bill Paxton is directing for the first time since Frailty!
The novel, “is set in East Texas and follows an adolescent boy, his little sister, and their father who stumble across the body of a black woman who has been savagely mutilated and left to die in the bottom of the Sabine River. The townsfolk cover up the crime until the body of a white woman is found in similar circumstances and it falls to the family to unearth the truth.”
Brent Hanley (who wrote the screenplay for Frailty) is handling the adaptation. Paradise City also produced Jim Mickle’s Cold In July (that book was also written by Lansdale). The film shoots later this year.
