New Line Finds New Writer/Director For ‘Killing on Carnival Row’

New Line’s signed director Neil Jordan to the future fantasy Killing on Carnival Row, according to Variety. Jordan’s also set to do a rewrite on the film, which Arnold and Anne Kopelson will produce through their Kopelson Entertainment banner. New Line acquired “Carnival” in late 2005, preemptively buying Travis Beacham’s spec centered on a Victorian city inhabited by humans, faeries, elves and vampires, with a detective pursuing a serial killer. Guillermo del Toro was once attached to helm the project, which has been in development for the past year.
