John Davis Eyes Dorothy Kilgallen


Variety says producer John Davis has optioned “Good Night, Dorothy Kilgallen,” a proposal for an expose book by Paul Alexander that ties the syndicated columnist’s death to her investigation of the JFK assassination.

Davis will produce through his Davis Entertainment and will bring the project to Fox through his first-look deal.

Alexander, whose previous books include “Boulevard of Broken Dreams: The Life of James Dean,” will script a fictionalized conspiracy film supervised by screenwriter Shane Salerno.

Salerno and Derek Dauchy will be executive producers.
