Warner Bros. Pictures has hired Fernley Phillips to write adaptation "You Want Me to Kill Him?"

Do Warner Bros. Pictures want to kill him? No, of course not. The movie studio just wants Fernley Phillips to write the adaptation of "You Want Me to Kill Him?" The drama thriller is based on Judy Bachrach's article "U Want Me 2 Kill Him?," published in the February edition of Vanity Fair.

"You Want Me to Kill Him?" is a true-life tale that chronicles a strange Internet relationship between a 14-year-old loner and a 16-year-old in which the younger boy wound up being stabbed twice and nearly killed by the older boy. In hand to produce the film is Bryan Singer.
