New Line Cinema To Adapt 'Black Dahlia Avenger'[Friday, August 25th, 2006]
New Line Cinema is set to adapt a book by ex-L.A. homicide detective Steve Hodel Black Dahlia Avenger, says the Hollywood Reporter.
The story details Hodel's investigation into Hollywood's most infamous unsolved crime that led him to finger his own father as the killer. Hodel was retired when his father died and he received an album of old photos. He realized two of them were of Elizabeth Short, the aspiring actress found cut in half and posed in a bizarre manner.
Hodel, on a quest to discover who his father really was, came up with a picture of a brilliant, charming, Hannibal Lecter-like villain he believes may have killed a dozen people. Scribe Ralph Pezzullo has been brought aboard to write the script.
