Monte Cristo Reborn In “Hell”

Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy have sold their original script “Once Upon a Time in Hell” to Phoenix Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on Alexandre Dumas’ classic novel “The Count of Monte Cristo,” ‘Hell’ moves the setting to modern London’s organized crime underworld.

David Thwaites, Michael Connolly and Mike Medavoy are producing. The pair of scribes are also developing a new take on the Arthurian legend entitled “Pendragon”.
