The Weinstein Company Lands TV Rights to Truman Capote’s ‘In Cold Blood’

The Weinstein Company has optioned television rights to Truman Capote’s “In Cold Blood” with plans to make a TV event series.

Gary Oldman and Douglas Urbanski’s Flying Studios will produce the project, and screenwriter Kevin Hood is set to pen the script.

Truman Capote’s ‘In Cold Blood’ has been riveting audiences since it first hit the literary scene almost fifty years ago, and it continues to have that same thrilling, timeless appeal today,” commented David Glasser, TWC’s president and COO. “We are extremely excited to be partnering with Gary, Doug and the whole Flying Studios team to bring what’s sure to be an unbelievable series to TV viewers.”

The 1966 novel was last adapted for television in 1996 with a telepic starring Anthony Edwards, Eric Roberts and Sam Neill. The iconic story has been given the silver screen treatment three times, first in 1967 starring Robert Blake and Scott Wilson. In 2005, “Capote” won the late Philip Seymour Hoffman the Oscar for best actor, and in 2006, “Infamous,” starring Toby Jones as the author, was released.

For the Weinstein Company, senior VP of scripted TV Marc Velez, VP of scripted TV Megan Spanjian and creative exec Lauren O’Connor will oversee the project. The deal was brokered by Sarah Sobel, exec VP of business and legal affairs for TWC with APA.
