“Gone Bamboo”, the detective novel written by the late chef Anthony Bourdain, will be adapted for television.
According Deadline, the producers Webster Y Robert Stone acquired the rights to the 1997 book, so they are already working on a pilot episode.
The Stone brothers are well known in genres like “Suspense” and “Thriller”, since they have been in charge of films such as American Conspiracy Y 60 Seconds.
The book portrays the life of a murderer, Henry Denard, who fails in one of the best jobs of his career. In life, Bourdain described him as “A sociopathic beach book”.
“I wanted a hero as lazy, mercenary, willing and devoid of qualities as I sometimes see myself”said the chef, who passed away in 2018.
