Cinematical say the plot will see a criminal boss controlling a city from prison, Butler will play a District Attorney standing in his way. The original plot had the DA being targeted by a person who feels mistreated by the legal system. Filming will start in August.
The Weinstein Company are to make a film of Paulo Coelho's novel The Alchemist. The Hollywood adaptation will be directed by Laurence Fishburne. Fishburne will also play The Alchemist, and Harvey Weinstein is going to produce. News comes from Yahoo!.
