Frank Miller’s Philip Marlowe
Frank Miller will be adapting the Raymond Chandler’s Philip Marlowe in the film version of Trouble Is My Business, starring Sin City‘s own Clive Owen.
According to Variety, "Frank Miller knows more about noir than anyone I have ever met, and clearly the writing of Raymond Chandler has been an enormous influence on his life and his work," Owen said. "Miller adapting Chandler seemed like a perfect match." The hard-drinking private eye cracks cases, busts heads and romances femme fatales in 1940s Los Angeles.
Miller is hard at work adapting and directing Will Eisner’s The Spirit for Batfilm Productions and adapting his graphic novels Ronin and Sin City II to the expensive screen.
Owen joins actors such as Humphrey Bogart, Robert Mitchum, Robert Montgomery, George Montgomery, James Garner, Elliot Gould, Dick Powell, Powers Boothe, Phil Carey, Van Heflin, Gerald Mohr, James Caan and Danny Glover in the role of Philip Marlowe. Good luck, Clive.
Thanks and a tip o’da hat to Richard Pachter.
