            Author James Ellroy Returns to Screen
            LOS ANGELES (AP) - Film fans who enjoy tales of Tinseltown's dark underbelly have reason to rejoice. Author James Ellroy, whose noir L.A. Confidential was made into a feature film in 1997, is returning to the screen, this time with three projects based on his work. USA Network will produce James Ellroy's Los Angeles. The six- to 12-hour miniseries, airing in September 2002, will weave together real-life and fictional characters as seen through Ellroy's eyes. Robert Greenwald, director of the miniseries, is also turning My Dark Places, Ellroy's investigation into the murder of his mother, into a feature film. Shooting is slated to begin this year. And the director of James Ellroy's Feast of Death, a documentary that aired on the BBC in May, is seeking U.S. distribution for the work. Ellroy, a native of Los Angeles, now lives in Kansas.
