EXCLUSIVE: William Monahan, the Oscar-winning The Departed scribe who made his directing debut on the upcoming London Boulevard, has found his next film. He'll write and direct Becket, a new adaptation of the Jean Anouilh play that was previously turned into a 1964 film that starred Peter O'Toole and Richard Burton. That film, about the friendship and estrangement between King Henry II and the Archbishop of Canterbury, won an Oscar for scribe for Edward Anhalt and was nominated in 11 other categories.
