Writer lined up for Scarpetta film

14th January 2010

A scriptwriter has been appointed to bring Patricia Cornwell's Scarpetta series to the big screen.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Kerry Williamson has been brought in to craft the adaptation, after Fox 2000 acquired the rights to the series in April.

The Scarpetta project will not be the first time the writer has adapted a novel for the silver screen, as she recently authored the script for the film of Denis Hamill's Fork in the Road.

'Williamson's thriller screenplay will draw from the world and characters Cornwell has created but not from any novel's specific plot,' the publication claimed.

The film, which will star Angelina Jolie as the title character, could be the first of a long franchise as there are currently 17 novels in the series, with the most recent being last year's The Scarpetta Factor.

In an interview with the Observer last year, Cornwell said that she does not consider herself to be a typical crime writer, as her novels are more character driven than the average thriller.
