Earlier this week Brian wrote, on jtrforums,

Work on the movie adaptation of my novel A Study in Red - The Secret Journal of Jack the Ripper has been slowly continuing behind the scenes. The draft screenplay has now been completed and the search for the necessary cast members has now begun, with some surprisingly big names being mentioned by the production company. the film now has it’s Producer, Executive Producer, Director and development is now gathering pace. The film is now a co-production between Thunderball International Films (L.A.) and Masterplan Films, (UK), with development by Graham Associates, (International) Ltd.

Thunderball International Films, has a feature on their website, here, 


This dark psychological thriller tells of the incredible and terrifying events that surround psychiatrist Robert Cavendish when he inherits a decrepit, yellowed journal that appears to have been written by the infamous Whitechapel Murderer, who terrorised the streets of the East End of London in 1888.

Filled with dramatic imagery and an underlying sense of foreboding and danger, the novel will certainly lend itself well to the transformation from page to screen as the Author, Brian L. Porter Co-writes with talented Writer-Director, Andrew Jones of Masterplan Films, Ltd. the first draft of the screenplay.

I enjoyed the book a great deal, and look forward to this project.  Well done Brian!!
