True Detective Director to Write and Direct The Black Count
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.28.2014



Cary Fukunaga is a busy man these days. The True Detective director and producer has signed on (per Deadline) to write and direct an adaptation of Tom Reiss' 2012 biography The Black Count: Glory, Revolution, Betrayal, And The Real Count of Monte Cristo.

The book is about the life and adventures of French Revolution-era General Thomas-Alexandre Dumas. Dumas was born to a French nobleman and a slave woman of African descent and became the highest-ranking person of color to ever serve in any European army, reaching the rank of brigadier general in the French military. His son, Alexandre Dumas, used his father's adventures as the basis for The Three Musketeers and The Count Of Monte Cristo.

Mike Jackson, John Legend and Ty Stiklorius will produce the film alongside both Fukunaga and Troy Carter.
