Arclight sells Dead Simple
Arclight Films has launched sales on the Croisette of Dead Simple, the adaptation of Peter James’ bestselling crime novel.
Dead Simple follows British detective Roy Grace as he hunts for a bridegroom buried alive in an unknown place after his prankster groomsmen are killed in a car crash.
James produces with longtime collaborator and writing partner James Simpson and Leighton Lloyd.
“I love writing and I love cinema so I’m looking forward to taking my own novel back to the arena where I began my career,” said James. “Producing this film with a truly compelling storyline and a character I am passionate about while maintaining a voice in how it will translate to the screen is an empowering challenge I cannot wait to meet head on.
