Roland Emmerich’s Centropolis Entertainment recently picked up the crime thriller spec SCARLETVILLE from Jason Young. The script, which briefly landed on the Black List, is described as a cross between Blood Simple and Red Rock West.
The story follows a deadly criminal who shows up in the deceptively-quiet, small town of Scarletville. A diner owner named Hank must then spin a series of dark and twisted stories in order to delay the felon long enough for the law to arrive.
