When it comes to cinematic resumes, few women have a roster as impressive and alluring as Christine Vachon. She's been behind some really great films over the last few decades, as well as some irresistible cult doozies. There are more challenging films like Kids, Safe, and Happiness, as well as the hard-hitting and wonderful Far From Heaven. But then there's her impressive array of biopics -- I Shot Andy Warhol, Boys Don't Cry, Party Monster, The Notorious Bettie Page, Infamous, I'm Not There. ...

Basically, this producer has got a solid hold on the film world of modern icons and newsmakers, and now she's adding one more. Variety reports that she's optioned John Krokidas (who will direct) and Austin Bunn's spec called Kill Your Darlings -- a biopic thriller about Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and William Burroughs. Why a thriller? This is about the infamous 1944 murder. Now this isn't that William Tell mess in 1951, but rather the story of Lucien Carr -- one of the Beats who murdered Burroughs' childhood friend David Kammerer. As the story goes, Kammerer had been pursuing Carr for a while, and met his death after a sexual advance and physical attack.

Vachon's involvement bodes well for the piece, but it will come down to who is cast in these iconic roles. Any ideas?
