Arnold nabs ‘Night Stalker’

Novel chronicles childhood in El Paso, his groupies

Arnold Entertainment has acquired feature and television rights to Philip Carlo’s true-life crime book “The Night Stalker: The Life and Crimes of Notorious Serial Murderer Richard Ramirez.”

During the summer of 1985, Ramirez went on a killing spree in the Los Angeles area and murdered 13 people; he is on death row awaiting execution at California’s San Quentin Penitentiary.

In addition to chronicling Ramirez’s crimes, Carlo provides insight into the murderer’s childhood in El Paso, Texas, where he learned to kill under the tutelage of his cousin, a veteran of the Vietnam War.

Despite his crimes, Ramirez acquired a number of “groupies,” including a member of the jury that convicted him. He married one of his “fans,” Doreen Lloyd, in 1996.

Arnold Entertainment is headed by brothers David and Dannel Arnold, who produced the 1998 pic “Return to Paradise” starring Vince Vaughn and Anne Heche. They are currently developing “Microwave Park” with Alpine Pictures and “Giants” at Interlight Pictures.
