Elliott Kastner Reads "The Madman's Tale"



Producer Elliott Kastner has secured the rights to bring John Katzenbach's thriller book "The Madman's Tale" to the big screen.

The fourth film version of John Katzenbach's book is about to come up. Variety has reported that producer Elliott Kastner is on the move to develop "The Madman's Tale" based on Katzenbach's 2004 novel of which film rights he has acquired through his Cinema Seven.

Presenting a fresh plot and storytelling, the original concerns a man released from an asylum who is facing his own inner demons as he is flooded by a memory of a murderer he met in the institution. Story about him was told in two parallel parts, one during his time in the asylum and the other after he is released and feels compelled to author a book on the events surrounding that murder.

Assuming helming duties is Gregory Read who will direct from the script Katzenbach himself penned. Project will be the next big screen adaptation of Katzenbach's work after the 2002 "Hart's War" which Gregory Hoblit helmed for MGM.
