Jonathan Levine Plans Little Girl Lost


The Wackness director Jonathan Levine has plans to adapt Little Girl Lost, the 2004 Richard Aleas (a psuedonym for Charles Ardai) crime novel, reports Heat Vision.

Michael Bacall (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) will adapt the novel, which was released as part of the “Hard Case Crime” series of modern pulp paperbacks.

The story deals with a New York private investigator, John Blake, who investigates the murder of his high school sweetheart after the facts in the case start to turn up very differently than he expected.

Though some time has passed since the posting, Ardai shared his thoughts on a film version’s potential casting in 2007 at My Book, The Movie.
