Group buys Condon's WWII thriller 'Mirrors'
HOLLYWOOD — Trilogy Entertainment Group has acquired rights to Richard Condon’s World War II thriller “An Infinity of Mirrors.”
Hollywood’s previous Condon adaptations include “The Manchurian Candidate” and “Prizzi’s Honor.”
“An Infinity of Mirrors” tells of the romance between a French Jewish woman and a German officer who marry and move to Berlin just as Hitler begins his rise to power.
The story is told from the perspectives of both the Jews and the German officers. However, Trilogy partner John Watson, who will pen the adaptation, said the film, like the book, would not delve into the world of concentration camps.
Producers are Trilogy partners Pen Densham, Neil Kaplan and Watson. David Haspel will executive produce.
Paramount Pictures is shooting a remake of “Manchurian” that stars Denzel Washington and Meryl Streep.
Trilogy is producing MGM’s “The Outer Limits” feature, based on the Showtime series it produced for seven seasons.
Other Trilogy projects include “If Not for You” at Par and “Taj Mahal” at Warner Bros. Pictures. The company just finished executive producing “The Twilight Zone” with New Line Television for UPN.
The Harold Matson Co. represents the Condon family.
