Based on the Nobel Prize-winning author William Faulkner's 1948 suspense novel "Intruder in the Dust," focuses on a black man in rural Mississippi falsely accused of shooting a white neighbor in the back. The imprisoned man must stave off a lynch mob with the help of an unlikely band of locals who search for the evidence that will prove his innocence. "Dust" was first adapted to film by director Clarence Brown for MGM in 1949. Production on the new project is expected to begin in 2009.
