'A Time to Kill' hopes to come to Broadway in 2013.

Producer Daryl Roth is aiming to bring Rupert Holmes' stage adaptation of John Grisham's A Time to Kill to Broadway in the spring or summer of 2013, according to ArtInfo. No casting or theater have been announced at this time. Roth had previously hoped the show would open on the Great White Way this fall. 

A Time to Kill tells the story of a Mississippi town's upheaval when Carl Lee Hailey takes the law into his own hands following an unspeakable crime committed against his daughter. Now on trial for murder, Hailey's only hope lies with young, idealistic lawyer Jake Brigance, who is outmatched by the formidable district attorney Rufus Buckley, and under attack from both sides of a racially divided city.

The stage adaptation of A Time to Kill made its world premiere in May 2011 at the Arena Stage in Washington, D.C., with a cast headed by Broadway vet Sebastian Arcelus. The cast also featured Erin Davie, Dion Graham, Rosie Benton, Brennan Brown, Jeffrey M. Bender, Trena Bolden Fields, Jonathan Lincoln Fried, Deborah Hazlett, Joe Isenberg, Chike Johnson, Michael Marcan, Hugh Nees, Evan Thompson and John C. Vennema.

A film adaptation of A Time to Kill was released in 1996 starring Matthew McConaughey, Sandra Bullock, Samuel L. Jackson and Kevin Spacey.
