'Justified’ EP Chris Provenzano Inks AMC Overall Deal, To Adapt Elmore Leonard’s ‘Gunsights’
Nellie Andreeva at deadline.com reports on the deal to bring the late, great writer Elmore Leonard's last Western novel to TV.
Justified executive producer Chris Provenzano has signed an overall deal with AMC. Under the pact, he already is working on a drama series project, an adaptation of Elmore Leonard’s 1979 novel Gunsights. This makes it a nice continuation for Provenzano, who spent the last five years on FX drama Justified, based on Leonard’s novella Fire In The Hole.
Considered Leonard’s final Western novel, Gunsights, set in 1893, centers on two tough men and friends, scout Dana Moon and Army man Brendan Early, who used to work together, including a mission chasing an Apache chief into Mexico.
