Lucien Carr, now famous for his volatile mentorship of Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg, died without ever clarifying the murky details of his early life. Carr was convicted for the manslaughter of David Kammerer in 1944, and though he was pardoned, a haze of uncertainty still surrounds the incident. However, director John Krokidas and producer Christine Vachon hope to shed some light on Carr's life in their upcoming biopic Kill Your Darlings.
