Director Sam Mendes options Flavia de Luce Mystery

American Beauty director Sam Mendes has bought the rights to Canadian author Alan Bradley’s New York Times-bestselling Flavia de Luce mysteries.

The 10-part Flavia de Luce series (four are in print so far) follows the adventure of a precocious 11-year-old sleuth in post WWII England.

Bradley, who grew up in Cobourg, ON, took early retirement from the media center at the University of Saskatchewan in 1994 to write. His first Flavia de Luce book, The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, was a surprise hit when it came out in 2009.

Bradley’s books have so far been sold in 33 countries and translated into 31 languages.

Wonder who will be cast if this goes into production.
