New Line Unveils "Black Dahlia Avenger"



New Line Cinema is about to make a movie adaptation of Steve Hodel's book, "Black Dahlia Avenger."

Adding its project of film adaptation after "The Golden Compass" and "Inkheart", New Line Cinema has set to develop "Black Dahlia Avenger" based on a book of the same title written by ex-L.A. homicide detective Steve Hodel.

While there is no word yet about either cast or director, the company has assigned Ralph Pezzullo to pen the script with Hodel as the executive producer. The movie itself will likely to stick close to the book which follows Hodel's investigation into Hollywood's most infamous unsolved crime that unexpectedly led him to assume his own father as the murderer.

Not to be confused with Brian De Palma's "The Black Dahlia", an adaptation of the James Ellroy's novel, "Avenger" also deals on the real murder of Elizabeth Short, whose body, cut in half at the waist and mutilated, was discovered in a vacant lot in the Leimert Park neighborhood of Los Angeles on January 15, 1947.
