SPENSER FOR HIRE AGAIN!
ROBERT B. PARKER IS KEEPING HIS FRANCHISES TURNING AND BURNING. WRITING FOR HIS BLOG, HE UPDATES NEWS ON A REMAKE OF HIS SPENSER FOR HIRE SERIES . . .
(April 23rd) We are in negotiation for a remake of the SPENSER: FOR HIRE series to be produced by SONY/DREAMWORKS, and shown on TNT. There is often a slip twixt cup and lip in Los Angeles, but so far things are promising.
(May 29th) Negotiations continue on the Spenser For Hire front. The mills of Hollywood grind exceeding fine. But I have no reason to think it won't happen in awhile.
PARKER ALSO REPORTS HE’S ADDING NEW LIFE TO HIS SPENSER SERIES . . .
(May 29th) I am currently writing a book with the working title SIXKILL in which a new character joins Spenser's world. Probably be out next year . . . The next Spenser novel, THE PROFESSIONAL will go on sale October 5 of this year.
AND REGARDING JESSE STONE . . .
(April 23rd) The next Jesse Stone movie will be on CBS sometime later this year (its done and waiting) and Jesse Stone movie #7 will start shooting in Nova Scotia on , I am told, September 8.
AND THERE MAY ALSO BE LIFE LEFT IN HITCH AND COLE BEYOND THE TRILOGY COMPLETED BY BRIMSTONE . . .
(May 29th) The response to BRIMSTONE has been gratifying. I don't know very far ahead, what I'm going to write. But I rather don't like the idea of not writing anymore about Hitch and Cole, so, probably, I will.
