〉 The writing team is set to adapt Moffat’s BBC series for the big screen.
Writing duo Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry have been tapped to pen the feature adaptation of Steven Moffat’s BBC 1 series JEKYLL. Geoff Shaevitz will oversee the project for Lionsgate.
The story is based on Moffat’s series, which ran for one season in 2006-2007. A modern update of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale, the series centers on a man with split personalities who struggles to keep his murderous alter ego under control while trying to elude a covert organization that may want to use Mr. Hyde for their own nefarious purposes.
Bagarozzi and Mondry are frequent collaborators with Iron Man 3 writer-director Shane Black, including the upcoming action comedy The Nice Guys, starring Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling. In addition to Nice Guys, the duo has worked on Doc Savage at Sony and the Death Note remake, which recently moved to Netflix. Sony is also in development with Tick-Tock, the pair’s feature screenwriting debut, which was purchased for a reported $1,000,000 back in 2000.
Moffat is the prolific British television producer who made waves with the hit comedy Coupling, which aired from 2000 to 20004. In addition to Jekyll, Moffat’s credits include the hit series Sherlock and the most recent incarnation of the venerable British sci-fi series Doctor Who, for which he took the reigns in 2009. Moffat, who has been a lightning rod for controversy during his tenure of Who, is expected to leave the series in 2017. He also serves as executive producer of the Doctor Who spinoff series, Class.
