Two books are being penned about Alexander Litvinenko, poisoned Nov 1, 2006, one of which is being purchased by Warner Bros for Johnny Depp to film and possibly star in, and the other written--I assume ghost-written--by widow Marina Litvinenko and close family friend, Alex Goldfarb. Theirs is being scooped up by Columbia Pictures.
The Depp/Warner Bros book is by Alan Cowell (no relation) of the NYT.
My question is, who'll play raspy Putin?
I just wish they'd nail the inhuman rascals who would do that to a human being, don't you?
Sheesh! Never thought Johnny Depp would show up in this blog!
Here's the AP article: Depp to Make Film About Poisoned Spy and there's a great blog on Russia and the former Soviet Union called Siberian Light which you should check out for Litvinenko investigation info and much more.
