Raymond Chandler's novella Trouble is My Business is being turned into a movie by Universal Pictures. According to Variety, Frank Miller will be adapting the written work for the screen.
The film is being set up as a starring role for Clive Owen. It will give the actor a chance to marry a compelling voice-over to the hard boiled private eye Philip Marlowe. The guy "cracks cases, busts heads and romances femme fatales in 1940s Los Angeles."
Owen stated, "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."
No date has been set for shooting.
