Kelley, best known as creator of such TV series as “Boston Legal” and “Ally McBeal,” is adapting the novel.

“This is an amazing opportunity to adapt a script from material penned by one of the world’s most acclaimed and accomplished authors,” Kelley said in a statement. “Mr. Mercedes is a great story that will translate beautifully to the screen if I don’t mess it up.”
