John Langley, the producer best known for creating and exec producing the long-running reality series Cops, has hired Pulp Fiction co-writer Roger Avary to adapt the William Faulkner novel Sanctuary for a feature. Langley, who most recently produced the features Brooklyn’s Finest and Leaves of Grass, is teamed with Ali exec producer Lee Caplin on the effort. First published in 1931, Faulkner’s bleak tale of a changing social order in the South involved characters that include a ruthless moonshine racketeer and other sinister types who commit murder, abduction and other unsavory deeds. Just the kind of stuff that was prevalent in Pulp Fiction, for which Avary shared a screenwriting Oscar with Quentin Tarantino.
