Fox Hill Productions has optioned the development and production rights to Andrew Klavan's acclaimed trilogy of mystery novels: "Dynamite Road," "Shotgun Alley" and "Damnation Street." The trilogy has been adapted into one feature screenplay, titled Damnation Street, by the books' acclaimed writer. The film will be produced by Samantha Lusk, Andrew Hyatt and Seth David Mitchell of Fox Hill Productions (The Frozen, The Last Light).

"We're thrilled to be working with one of the masters of mystery," says Lusk. "In 'Damnation Street,' Klavan has crafted a story that not only presents a unique, gritty and hyper-real world, but also pays homage to the classic elements of the genre. This script does for noir what Unforgiven did for westerns."

Damnation Street is an edgy, neo-noir thriller centered on a cat and mouse game between a skilled private detective and a famed serial killer who are both in pursuit of a woman who is the fantasy of every man.

A two-time recipient of the Mystery Writers of America's Edgar Award, Klavan is an American writer best known for authoring the novels "True Crimes" and "Don't Say a Word," both of which have been turned into motion pictures. Warner Bros.' True Crimes starred Clint Eastwood and James Woods. Don't Say a Word, which featured Michael Douglas, Sean Bean and Brittany Murphy, was released by Twentieth Century Fox.
