Focus Goes For "In Bruges" and "Naples 44"

Indiewire By Indiewire | Indiewire March 10, 2006 at 8:12AM

Focus Features has announced a pair of new projects, Martin McDonagh's "In Bruges" and an adaptation of the book, "Naples '44." The company has worldwide rights to both new projects. McDonagh won an Oscar this week for his live action short film "Six Shooter," and wrote the script for the feature described as a Belgium-set hit man tale. It will be his feature directing debut. UK company Blue Print Pictures will produce the film. McDonagh is an accomplished playwright of "The Pillowman," "The Beauty Queen of Leenane," and "The Lieutenant of Inishmore." Also on tap, separately, is Ben Hopkins adaptation of Norman Lewis' "Naples '44," to be produced by Francesca Barra. It is described as the author's real-life story of experiences as a British intelligence officer stationed in Italy near the end of WWII. [Eugene Hernandez]
