According to the report, Missing scribe Gregory Poirier will pen the pilot and will executive-produce alongside Castle creator Andrew Marlowe and his wife, executive producer Terri Edda Miller. The hero of the fictional works, Derrick Storm, is described as a spy who helps the CIA with secret missions.
When viewers first met famous mystery novelist Richard Castle he was creatively blocked. But when the NYPD questioned him in connection with a series of murders staged to imitate crime scenes from his books, Castle found inspiration in NYPD Detective Kate Beckett. Once that initial case was solved, Castle and Beckett continued to investigate strange homicides in New York, combining Castle's writer intuition and Beckett's creative detective work. Over the years they did more than just solve crimes though -- they fell in love, started dating and then finally decided to get married.
But in the Season 6 finale, as Castle was driving to his much-anticipated nuptials, an ominous black SUV bore down on him. Then, when he didn't show up at the wedding, Beckett was called to an accident scene where she saw Castle's car in a ravine, engulfed in flames.
Who or what caused the car crash? Is there anyway Castle could have survived? Season 7 will pick-up at the scene of that accident, right where the finale left off, in a premiere that promises to put Beckett through the toughest case of her career.
