Michael Cristofer Penns Void Moon


Michael Christofer has adapted Michael Connelly’s best-selling crime novel “Void Moon” for Nu Image/Millennium Films. Director Yves Simoneau (HBO’s “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee”) is attached to direct, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The 2000 novel centers on Cassie Black, a former robber of casino gamblers who leaves her life of crime to become a Porsche saleswoman. But when a dark secret from her past threatens to be exposed, she returns to her former line of work and faces her old nemesis: a shady private investigator who moonlights doing dirty work for casino owners.

Pulitzer Prize- and Tony-winning playwright Christofer (“The Shadow Box”) adapted the novel after a previous screenplay was written by Connelly, so writing credits are yet to be determined.
