Platinum Studios and Tony Krantz, veteran producer of such films as director David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive and executive producer of Fox’s “24,” have partnered to develop the Platinum Studios graphic novel, “Mal Chance.” Screenwriter Scott Murphy has been tapped to write the screenplay.
“Mal Chance” is the story of Lola, a member of an ancient society of assassins targeted for death by a powerful gangster. Lola’s only hope for survival is to bring down the gangster’s entire illicit organization with the help of Dennis, a by-the-numbers FBI agent, unaware of her true identity.
“Flame understood ‘Mal Chance’ from the moment we first sat down and discussed it,” said Platinum’s Chairman and CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, who will serve as producer on the film with Flame’s Tony Krantz.
“‘Mal Chance’ is a wonderfully visual world steeped with contemporary and complex characters — all playing on the edge of life and death decisions,” said Krantz. “Working with Scott and Platinum continues to be a true pleasure and symbiotic.”
Former Universal Pictures senior executive Randy Greenberg of The Greenberg Group along with Flame Ventures’ President, Ross Dinerstein, will serve as Executive Producers.
