According to Mike Goodridge from ScreenDaily, "Chris Hanley of prolific US production outfit Muse Productions and Jordan Gertner of sister financing company Hero are in Cannes talking up a slate that includes films of novels An Expensive Education by Nick McDonell, Lunar Park by Bret Easton Ellis, The Shakespeare Riots by Nigel Cliff and London Fields by Martin Amis. In addition, Hanley and Gertner are close to attaching a director to the original Brett Easton Ellis script Golden Suicides on which Muse is partnered with PalmStar Entertainment. Gaspar Noe is one of the film-makers mulling about taking on the film."
Golden Suicides is the true story of "artists Jeremy Blake and Theresa Duncan, a glamorous couple who eventually secluded themselves in a cocoon of paranoia when they believed that government organizations and Scientologists were out to get them. Duncan killed herself in July 2007, and a week later, the despondent Blake walked into the Atlantic and drowned." (source)
