Warner Bros, Joel Silver Revive Ross Macdonald’s Lew Archer Novel Series With ‘The Galton Case’

By MIKE FLEMING JR | Monday October 31, 2011 @ 9:54am PDT

EXCLUSIVE: Warner Bros acquired rights to the Ross Macdonald mystery series about private detective Lew Archer. The studio will launch a franchise, starting with the 1959 novel The Galton Case, which was the eighth book in the series. Paul Newman played Archer in the  1966 Warner Bros film Harper and 1975 film The Drowning Pool.





I am interested as to how they will portray Mr. Archer  – a unique character in the genre.
