Morgan's The Jury set for big screen

PeterMorgan.jpgIt seems that another Peter Morgan story is heading for the big screen, this time it's the British mini-series The Jury which is going to be adapted by Beau Willimon and directed by Marc Foster.

The original story looked at a Jury as they tried to decide the fate of a young Sikh student who was charged with the killing of a classmate who had continually tormented and bullied him.

Marc Foster would be an interesting choice for the film, and it will be a good move away from the next Bond film he's set to direct.

What I think is more interesting is the potential for the idea for a new mini-series that could follow a new Jury film. Imagine each series looked at the Jury on one case? Their conflicts with each other, against the accused, there could be all sorts of twists and turns.

Even if my idea doesn't sell, this story from Variety does mark another of Peter Morgan's stories getting filmed, it's a good time for him at the moment. Last King of Scotland, The Queen, The Other Boleyn Girl, Frost/Nixon, and now The Jury.

The critics? No, I have nothing but compassion for them. How can I hate the crippled, the mentally deficient, and the dead?
