The film, called White Jazz, will begin shooting next November.
Carnahan tells film Web site Dark Horizons, "My brother and I wrote the adaptation. The script is one of my favorites. It's heartbreaking.
"It's, to me, what that book always was--the point of departure from the Eisenhower ‘50s to the psychedelic freakshow, Manson '60s.
"It's a total combination of the two with a heavy, heavy voice-over narration, this kind of classic noir."
