TV and Film Adaptations of Peter Temple Novels

| No TrackBacks
It's been a bit remiss of me not to have mentioned the proposed television adaptations of two Peter Temple novels featuring his Fitzroy lawyer Jack Irish.  There is a bit more information out about these now, namely that production has just started on the telemovies with airing on ABC1 scheduled for some time in 2012.  The two novels to appear are Bad Debts and Black Tide, the first and second novels in the series.

Guy Pearce will appear as Jack Irish, with the adaptations being written by Andrew Knight and Matt Cameron, with Jeffrey Walker directing. 

Andrew Knight is also adapting Temple's novel The Broken Shore into a telemovie for ABC TV with production due to commence next year.

This follows the announcement earlier this year that Temple's Miles Franklin Award-winning novel, Truth, is being filmed, though there appears to have been little in the media about this adaptation since February.
