Trouble is Their Business

Variety has announced that Frank Miller is set to adapt Raymond Chandler's "Trouble Is My Business" for the big screen with Clive Owen taking on the starring role of Phillip Marlowe. The hope is that this will kick off a series of films with Owen returning in each as the classic PI.

Miller and Owen worked together on "Sin City" and so their re-teaming seems a natural. Owen was quoted as saying: "Frank Miller knows more about noir than anyone I have ever met, and clearly the writing of Raymond Chandler has been an enormous influence on his life and his work. Miller adapting Chandler seemed like a perfect match." I couldn't agree more.
