Radar Pictures has hired Peter Cornwell (The Haunting in Connecticut) to direct an adaptation of Joseph Conrad’s novel, “Heart of Darkness,” reports Variety.
The adaptation, to be titled Into Darkness, will take place in space. Conrad’s 1902 book is the story of ferryboat captain Charles Marlow’s quest to return shadowy ivory trader Kurtz to civilization.
Tony Giglio and Branden Morgan wrote the script. Radar’s Ted Field and Mike Weber are producing.
