Ben Kingsley to feature in screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s ‘Violent Cases'

Writer Neil Gaiman and illustrator Dave McKean's first-ever graphic novel ‘Violent Cases’ is being adapted for screen, and it will feature Hollywood actor Ben Kingsley.

Variety reports that the creative team behind ‘The Girl With All the Gifts’, which includes writer Mike Carey, director Colm McCarthy, and producer Camille Gatin, will also lead the project. Meanwhile the film will be produced by Scary Monster, Lakeville Productions, and Foton Pictures.

“‘Violent Cases’ is a journey into the mind of Neil Gaiman, as a famous author recounts fragmented childhood memories and visits to an osteopath who once worked for Al Capone, weaving a dark and twisting tale about stories, our memory, violence and the ways we can’t escape our past,” reads the logline, as per ANI.

Ben Kingsley will play the role of the osteopath in the adaptation. Talking about it he said, “I’m delighted to be working with this fantastic team on ‘Violent Cases,’ which for me is about the power and importance of storytelling, about how we negotiate the shadows cast by the father figures in our lives and above all about the right of our inner child to be heard.”

Meanwhile, season 2 of Neil Gaiman's ‘Good Omens’ will soon be released. The first season was based on a book of the same title written by Terry Pratchett and Gaiman, and it has no sequel. The second season of the show will take the story ahead.
