The Mark Gordon Company will produce and finance an adaptation of Blood’s A Rover, the 2009 crime novel by L.A. Confidential author James Ellroy. A script has been written by Mark Fergus & Hawk Ostby, who were Oscar nominated for Children of Men and scripted Iron Man. Gordon will produce with Vincent Sieber — whose Midnight Road Entertainment developed the script with the scribes — and Clark Peterson. The film’s being packaged to shoot at year’s end with Sara Smith overseeing for Gordon.
