Rose takes on 'Justice' case with rights buy

3 November 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Producer-director Lee Rose has optioned film rights to the Edgar Allan Poe Award-winning mystery Simple Justice, the first of the gay-themed Benjamin Justice novels by John Morgan Wilson. The gritty L.A.-set novel, published in 1997, follows Justice, a disgraced alcoholic ex-journalist grieving over the death of his lover from AIDS. Justice sets out on a dangerous quest to clear a troubled Latino teenager who has confessed to murder but may be innocent. "It's a really tough and rough book, but I think it's just so beautifully written," Rose said. "A noir story about a gay ex-journalist who's fallen off the edge of the world -- it's something that hasn't been done before." As part of the deal, Rose will own the rights to the character as well as the option to pick up the four other novels in the series. Rose was nominated for a WGA Award in 2001 for The Truth About Jane. She also wrote, directed and produced the Showtime miniseries A Girl Thing, starring Kate Capshaw, Stockard Channing, Rebecca De Mornay and Mia Farrow, and directed and produced the USA Network movie The Color of Courage, starring Linda Hamilton. She is repped by Paul Alan Smith at Broder-Webb-Chervin-Silbermann and attorney Tom Hoberman. »
