The Secret Life of Houdini Will Launch into a Franchise
Jeff Nathanson the screenwriter for Catch Me if You Can and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull will write a script based on William Kalush and Larry Sloman’s biography The Secret Life of Houdini: The Making of America’s First Superhero. Summit Entertainment acquired the right of the book and hoping for more action thriller approach to the story and perhaps turn it into a franchise. The book raised controversy at the time it was published since it pictured the magician as a spy for Britain and that he was asked to be an adviser to Czar Nicholas II’s court in pre-revolutionary Russia.
