Oscar-winning screenwriter William Monahan (The Departed) has chosen to make the crime thriller Mojave as his follow-up to London Boulevard. As Monahan told Steve back in October, the follow-up to Boulevard was either going to be Mojave or Becket, an adaptation of the 1959 Jean Anouilh play, depending on which project received funding first. Hopefully, more details on Mojave will surface soon so we’ll have an idea of what Monahan has planned. According to Deadline, Atlas Independent will produce, and filming is set to begin in August in Southern California. Atlas Independent’s mission is to make movies for less than $10 million, so we at least have some notion of the Mojave‘s scope.
