Steve Kloves, who wrote seven of the eight Harry Potter films, has been asked by Warner Bros. to write and direct a new thriller: Defending Jacob. Defending Jacob is an adaption of William Landry's novel, a New York Times Best Seller. Variety reports:

Set in a wealthy Boston suburb, novel follows a district attorney who must leave his day job to defend his son from a murder charge while uncertain of his son's innocence.
The film is still in the very early stages of production, so there is no set release date just yet.
