If you didn't have enough nightmares after reading Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell's legendary graphic novel "From Hell," or watching the 2001 film adaptation, you're in luck. The network FX plans to adapt the book into a television series, Deadline reports.
The script will be written by David Arata, who co-wrote the screenplay for the film "Children of Men," based on the P.D. James novel. Don Murphy will serve as executive producer; Murphy produced the film version, as well as such movies as "Natural Born Killers," "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" and "Transformers."
"From Hell" deals with the Whitechapel murders perpetrated by Jack the Ripper, the 19th century London serial killer whose identity has never been discovered. There have been dozens of theories, of course; Moore's novel posits that the slayings were the result of a conspiracy to cover up the birth of a prince's illegitimate child.
