Todd Field To Adapt ‘Creed Of Violence’
Posted by Brian on 06/02/2009
Todd Field (Little Children, In The Bedroom) is set to adapt Boston Teran’s novel Creed Of Violence. The novel takes place in 1910, as two men — a desperado and a government agent with a secret connection to him — try to thwart an arms smuggling ring. Field has committed only to write at this point, but he is selective about assignments and rarely scripts projects he doesn’t direct. He’s also booked to write and direct an adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian. Creed Of Violence is the second novel by Teran, the secretive writer who penned the cult-fave tome God Is A Bullet.
