"I fell in love with this when I read it," Vachon told Variety. "It's a fantastic opportunity to explore the birth of the Beats through this little known and shocking crime."

Krokidas is gay and is also attached to direct a film called Slow-Mo for Sandy Stern and Michael Stipe's Single Cell Productions. Bunn, also gay, is a frequent contributor to The Advocate. Bunn also cowrote Vachon's book A Killer Life. (Corey Scholibo, The Advocate)
