I saw From Hell (2001) starring Johnny Depp and have to admit that I liked it and watched it a few times since. FX has greenlit a new TV series based on the graphic novel written by Alan Moore. FX’s From Hell TV series will feature a screenplay written by David Arata (Children of Men). The movie did not follow the source material too closely and it has not been confirmed how closely the TV series will either. I am excited to see what happens because Jack the Ripper was such an interesting character and quite the mystery for years, until the mystery of Jack the Ripper was solved recently.
From Hell tells the tale of Jack the Ripper with the killer himself as the main character. Detailing the events leading up to the Whitechapel killings and the cover-up that followed, the 572-page graphic novel is a meditation on the mind of a madman whose savagery and violence gave birth to the 20th century.
