DreamWorks tasting the Nightlife

DreamWorks Pictures have snapped up the rights to Thomas Perry’s book about a female serial killer, called Nightlife.

DreamWorks honchos Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci have wasted no time in getting professional scary-scribbler Ehren Kruger on board to tap out the adaptation. With a CV including Hollywood horror reworks of The Ring and The Ring 2, plus the Kate Hudson/ John Hurt voodoo heart-stopper The Skeleton Key, Kruger is more than up to the job.

The tale centres on a woman who changes her identity every time she snuffs someone but when a female detective gets a little too close for comfort, the relationship between cop and criminal becomes blurred.

Kruger (scary name too, eh?) is currently tapping the keys for David Fincher’s Torso which is expected to arrive in cinemas sometime next year.
