From Hell Coming to TV
Comicbookrecources.com reported the following today:
Deadline reports the series will be executive produced by Don Murphy, who produced the 2001 film adaptation, and penned by “Children of Men” screenwriter David Arata.
Originating in 1989 as serial in the anthology “Taboo,” “From Hell” is a meticulously researched account — the collected edition is 572 pages — that depicts the grisly Whitechapel killings as part of a conspiracy involving the Royal Family and the Freemasons, with occult overtones.
The story was loosely adapted by brothers Albert and Allen Hughes for the 2001 film starring Johnny Depp, Heather Graham and Ian Holm, but Deadline contends Murphy has always envisioned “From Hell” as a television series.
The first of Moore’s works to be adapted for the big screen, “From Hell” was followed in 2003 by “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen,” which was announced last year to be in development as a TV series for Fox.
