Legends get their day // STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN

Miramax Films has paid low-six figures to acquire all film rights to Stevie Ray Vaughan: Caught in the Crossfire, the best-selling biography about the late Texas blues guitarist.

Miramax will adapt a screenplay based on the novel, which was a New York Times best-seller. As yet no producer, director or screenwriter has been attached to the project, which is still in the early stages of development.

The biography was written by Joe Nick Patoski, a senior editor at Texas Monthly and former columnist for the Austin American-Statesman, and Bill Crawford, a writer and radio producer who co-wrote Border Radio. The biography traces the guitarist's life from his early childhood in Texas to his death in a helicopter crash in 1990. Vaughan developed his unique style early in his musical career in competition with his brother Jimmie, who founded the Fabulous Thunderbirds.
