Sam Riley to star in Burgess book

I am a huge fan of the books written by the late Anthony Burgess so ,was amazed to hear on the film grapevine that a film is to be made of the book starring Sam Riley who starred in control the film about Joy Division where he played Ian Curtis .He is down to play the Elizabethan playwright ,in burgess book about Marlowe Dead man in Deptford which was one of the last novels he wrote and last published in his life time I read the book in 93 when it was first published  ,but have decide to reread it and review it for the blog  as I loved it loads first time round .Look forward to the film as he was meant be a spy so can see dark alleys and taverns in this film .

    WOW, I loved this book, so will be interested in the film. also I thought the film Control was fantastic & Sam Riley, played the part well, I thought he caught the spirit of Ian Curtis brilliantly. so I will be waiting with anticipation on your write up.
