"The Talented Mr. Ripley" Book Series Will Be Adapted for Television

It’s been more than 15 years since a film adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s novel The Talented Mr. Ripley raked in nearly $130 million at the box office with Matt Damon playing the title role. Now Highsmith’s entire Ripley series—five novels also known as the Ripliad—will be adapted for TV by Television 360, Endemol Shine Studios and the publisher Diogenes.

The remake doesn’t yet have a writer, director or major star attached, and, according to the Hollywood Reporter, its producers will likely wait until talent is locked in to find the series a home.
