The film originally reported for development last year with Christopher McQuarrie drafting, GK Films has now hired screenwriter Scott Frank to take on Unforgiven. Deadline has the word that the Minority Report scribe will adapt the 2009 ITV1 miniseries.
The TV series starred Suranne Jones as Ruth Slater, a convict responsible for the double homicide of two police officers. Following her release from prison 15 years later, she’s targeted for revenge.
The movie was originally envisioned as a star vehicle for Angelina Jolie.
