Carter Beats The Devil
The Wrap is reporting that Warner Bros. Pictures has resurrected its plan to film "Carter Beats the Devil." Michael Gilio will adapt, while Jon Shestack will produce.
If you haven't read it, Glen David Gold's novel is a fictionalised biography of 20's real-life magician Carter the Great. The magician finds himself in the middle of a strange mystery, and the story even manages to weave in real life personalities as characters.
As a huge fan of stage magicians and their history, I greatly enjoyed the novel a few years back. Again, strongly recommended and fun reading!
If done right, I think this would be a great and fun film. Hopefully, more details to follow!
