Dreams: Dan Leno
Edited by Phil Stubbs
Just as Gilliam is about to start shooting Brothers Grimm,
this comes along...
1 June 2003
It is reported at the end of May by Teletext
that Stephen Woolley is set to produce a film called Dan Leno and the
Limehouse Golem, based on Peter Ackroyd's novel of the same name.
Terry Gilliam is down to direct. The project is described as a psychological
murder mystery set in Victorian London. The script will be written by
Tony Grisoni with Gilliam, and I understand that the UK's Film Council
has purchased the rights to the book on behalf of the filmmakers. Look
out for further news on this project here over the next few months.
