Travis Beacham wrote the script, which is set in a mystical city dubbed Burgue, where both humans and bizarre creatures co-exist. The plot centers around a serial killer roaming the streets of Burgue. Killing on Carnival Row is the first script Travis Beacham sold, which paved the way for his work on Clash of the Titans, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and Pacific Rim.
Arnold Kopelson and Anne Kopelson are producing Killing on Carnival Row. The producers are currently in talks with a studio for Killing on Carnival Row, although nothing is finalized yet. Arnold Kopelson and Anne Kopelson are planning to begin production next June in New Orleans.
