Dreams: Dan Leno

Edited by Phil Stubbs

Just as Gilliam is about to start shooting Brothers Grimm, this comes along...

1 June 2003
It is reported at the end of May by Teletext that Stephen Woolley is set to produce a film called Dan Leno and the Limehouse Golem, based on Peter Ackroyd's novel of the same name. Terry Gilliam is down to direct. The project is described as a psychological murder mystery set in Victorian London. The script will be written by Tony Grisoni with Gilliam, and I understand that the UK's Film Council has purchased the rights to the book on behalf of the filmmakers. Look out for further news on this project here over the next few months.
