Gene Hackman Lands Book Deal for Western

9780312587598.jpgActor Gene Hackman has sealed a deal to publish his next novel with Pocket Books. Entitled Jubal’s Bounty, the new Western takes place in 19th century of New Mexico–recounting the adventures of “a brave young hero who is forced to take the law into his own hands after the murder of his family.”

Deputy publisher Anthony Ziccardi acquired the worldwide rights to the book, and the deal was negotiated by Noah Lukeman of Lukeman Literary Management. The book will be published in July 2011.

Here’s more about Hackman’s literary career, from the release: “Prior to Jubal’s Bounty, Hackman co-authored three novels, Wake of the Perdido Star (1999), Justice for None (2004), and Escape from Andersonville (2008) and received critical acclaim for his historically accurate, elegant writing.”
