Angelina Jolie is partnering with Fox 2000 and author Patricia Cornwell for a film version of Cornwell's best-selling book series about medical examiner and ardent opera fan, Dr. Kay Scarpetta. Fox is in the process of acquiring the big screen rights and will develop the project as a starring vehicle for Jolie. Cornwell is one of the most commercially successful female authors in the world.
The studio, producers, and Jolie herself are meeting with writers and will choose one to develop and write the script. The series spawned 16 novels, but the film will not be based on a single title. Rather, parts of the series will be woven into one cohesive script. The project is expected to take a Silence of the Lambs-like tone.
