Didn’t say St. Angie say she was going to go away for a while, so she could raise her child army, tutor Jesus in the subject of tolerance and save a planet or something? Well, apparently her break is going to wait a little while longer, because St. Angie has agreed to play Dr. Kay Scarpetta in the film version of Patricia Cornwell’s best-selling book series.
I’ve never read Patricia’s books, but that’s what Wikipedia is for!
Dr. Kay Scarpetta was born in Miami, Florida. She is of Italian descent on both sides of her family, with the Scarpettas emigrating from Verona, Italy. She is blonde, and a sharp dresser, although always professional. In the early novels Scarpetta is the Chief Medical Examiner for the state of Virginia, and works in Richmond. She resigns after the events of The Last Precinct and relocates to Florida to become a private forensic consultant. Scarpetta returns to Virginia in Trace at the request of her replacement, Dr. Joel Marcus. In Predator, Scarpetta becomes the head of the National Forensic Academy in Hollywood, Florida, a private institution founded by her wealthy niece Lucy. In The Book of the Dead, Scarpetta has relocated as a freelance forensic examiner/expert to Charleston, South Carolina. In the most recent novel, Scarpetta, she has relocated to Massachusetts where she is an M.E but she and Benton also share an apartment in NYC.
St. Angie and the producers are currently meeting with writers. The movie won’t be based on any specific novel, but they hope to turn it into a franchise.
Basically, it sounds like this movie is going to consist of St. Angie aiming a gun, pouting her lips, giving sexyface, shaking uncontrollably while screaming about whatever and taking long pauses while she squints her eyes all intense-like. Rinse and repeat.
Honestly, this sounds like some “V. I. Warshawski” shit. And nothing gets better than that masterpiece of a movie.
