Sin City (2005) director, Frank Miller will direct a new feature film noir for Universal. The movie will be an adaptation of the Raymond Chandler novella, Trouble is My Business, which has not been previously produced for the screen, and will star Sin City lead, Clive Owen.
Universal and production partner, Strike Entertainment, obtained the rights for the story from UK-based Chorion. The studios hope this film will kick off a series of PI Philip Marlowe flicks.
