There are 16 novels in the series, which will be turned into a suspense thriller similar to "The Silence of the Lambs" and "Seven."

Scarpetta is an opera-loving coroner, and this seems like the perfect match for Angelina - she's one of the most sought after female movie stars, and Cornwell is one of the best selling female authors in the world.
