Hat Trick Productions has optioned the rights to historian and novelist Simon Sebag Montefiore’s Russian thriller One Night In Winter, with plans to develop it into a TV series. One Night In Winter is set just after the Second World War. As Stalin and his courtiers celebrate victory over Hitler, shots ring out. On a nearby bridge, a teenage boy and girl lie dead.
