Tom Franklin’s Western novel Hell at the Breech is being adapted into a feature film. Family Tree co-creator/actor/writer Jim Piddock is producing the film (through his Crystal Palace Entertainment production company) and also handling adapting the book for the screen.
The project has not yet announced a director.
The highly praised book tells of disturbing true incidents that occurred only miles from author Franklin’s home. Set in 1897, Hell at the Breech fixes on a group of townsfolk in rural Alabama who form a secret society to punish the townspeople they believe responsible for the murder of an aspiring politician.
