DreamWorks ressuscite Houdini et Conan Doyle
DreamWorks buys script about Houdini and Conan Doyle
Février 10, 2011
CINÉMA

DreamWorks a acheté le scénario de J. Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5, Arabesque...) intitulé "Voices from the Dead" ("Voix d'outre-tombe") et qui s'articule autour de la relation entre l'illusioniste Harry Houdini et l'écrivain Arthur Conan Doyle.

Leur relation n'est pas une fiction. Ils se sont réellement rencontrés en 1920 et se sont liés d'amitié durablement malgré leurs désaccords. En effet, Conan Doyle était un fervent défenseur du spiritisme, tandis que Houdini n'avait de cesse d'essayer de démystifier les phénomènes paranormaux.

Le scenario de Straczynski sera toutefois une fiction qui verra les deux hommes s'associer pour élucider des meurtres dans le New York des années 20.

On ne connait pas encore le détails du casting ni le réalisateur.

DreamWorks Buys J. Michael Straczynski's Script About Houdini and Arthur Conan Doyle

Based on their real relationship, "Voices from the Dead" pairs up the famous magician and the Sherlock Holmes creator as they try to solve a set of murders in 1920's New York.

DreamWorks has purchased the original screenplay Voices From the Dead from Changeling writer J. Michael Straczynski. The thriller delves into the real-life relationship between magician Harry Houdini and Sherlock Holmes creator Arthur Conan Doyle.

Houdini and Doyle, who was a leading Spiritualist at the time, met in 1920 and became friends for a while despite long-running arguments about the existence of the supernatural. Doyle included a chapter in his book The Edge of the Unknown that claimed that Houdini had psychic powers, while Houdini often used his acts to debunk fraudulent claims about the spirit world.

Straczynski's script creates a fictional account of the two teaming up with a psychic to solve a set of murders in 1920's New York.

The CAA-repped Straczynski also co-wrote the 2009 action thriller Ninja Assassin, and he has screenplays in development at Disney (Shattered Union), Warner Bros. (Forbidden Planet) and Marvel (Silver Surfer). In TV, he was a writer-producer for Babylon 5, Jeremiah and Murder, She Wrote, among others.
