Thompson Buys A Thunderstorm

1 July 2009 10:45 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Producer David Thompson has bought the rights to Ordinary Thunderstorms, the forthcoming novel from novelist and screenwriter William Boyd.Set in London, the story takes place amid a "drug-testing conspiracy" and sees a man accused of a crime he didn't commit (taking drugs? We're guessing).Thompson, who produced Eastern Promises, Revolutionary Road and the upcoming Fish Tank among many others, calls the story "sophisticated and unpredictable in equal measure" and noted that it was rare to find such qualities in a London-set thriller.Boyd previously wrote the screenplay for Robert Downey Jr. starrer Chaplin, as well as adapting his own A Good Man In Africa and TV's Armadillo, so it's always possible that he'll adapt this himself. Watch this space for further news on what sounds like an interesting premise. »
