'Three Identical Strangers'

Death in the Air (Hachette, Oct. 17) by Kate Winkler Dawson
Agency: UTA

Pitched as in the vein of The Devil in the White City, this debut book by a news producer turned journalism professor tells the story of the serial killer who murdered six women during the infamous fog that smothered London for five days in December 1952.

Three Identical Strangers (Raw, Jan. 19), Directed by Tim Wardle 
Agency: Submarine

This documentary about three men who discover that they are identical triplets separated at birth made a splashy bow at Sundance. Now, narrative remake rights are being hotly pursued (Submarine's Josh Braun locked down life rights at the festival).
