Hunger Games producers developing Suspect

Hunger Games producers developing Suspect

Production troupe Color Force, the team behind “The Hunger Games”, will bring to the big screen another popular novel, “Suspect” by Robert Crais.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Color Force’s Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson will head up producing duties, with David DiGilio (“Eight Below”) writing the screenplay.

Suspect is tells the story of rookie Los Angeles police officer Scott James, who loses his partner in a shooting and, in a form of therapy, is tasked with taking care of Maggie, a German Shepherd who lost her Marine handler in Afghanistan and who now suffers from PTSD. The novel follows the growing relationship between the policeman and the dog as they help each other heal and chase his partner’s killers.

The book mines the LA-based Crais’ knowledge of the city of to give the novel a true local flavor and pulls off the difficult trick of turning Maggie into a full-fledged character. The paperback edition of Suspect publishes on Jan. 7.

“Nina understood Maggie and Scott, and the true nature of my novel,” said Crais, who wasn’t crazy about Hollywood making a movie of his book. “When I saw the caring and brilliant job she did in bringing Suzanne’s [Collins] books to the screen, I knew she was the perfect producer for Suspect.”

The project is set up at Fox2000.
