It looks like James McTeigue will be trying his hand at another adaptation. After creating one of my favorite films of 2006, V for Vendetta, the director will try his hand at a live-action version of Bangkok 8.

James McTeigue to Direct Bangkok 8

Millennium Films has optioned Bangkok 8, the first in a three-book bestselling mystery series by John Burdett. Can somebody say trilogy?

Bangkok 8 tells the story of a detective with the Royal Thai Police Force tracks the murderers of his partner, and also a U.S. Marine. The trail leads through Bangkok's drug and sex trade, and corrupt colleagues. Burdett recently published the third book in the series, Bangkok Haunts. As it turns out, the author actually lives in Bangkok and uses the terrain for his books.

Millennium hopes to continue adapting Burdett's Thai-based novels until there are no more. With the help of James McTeigue, who boosted his career by working as second unit director on The Matrix films, this could be possible.

Hey, anybody who can convince us that a masked villain is cool is alright by me. McTeigue recently worked on the set of The Invasion.

Stay tuned for updates.
