Basically, this producer has got a solid hold on the film world of modern icons and newsmakers, and now she's adding one more. Variety reports that she's optioned John Krokidas (who will direct) and Austin Bunn's spec called Kill Your Darlings -- a biopic thriller about Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and William Burroughs. Why a thriller? This is about the infamous 1944 murder. Now this isn't that William Tell mess in 1951, but rather the story of Lucien Carr -- one of the Beats who murdered Burroughs' childhood friend David Kammerer. As the story goes, Kammerer had been pursuing Carr for a while, and met his death after a sexual advance and physical attack.
Vachon's involvement bodes well for the piece, but it will come down to who is cast in these iconic roles. Any ideas?
