Curtis Hanson (L.A. Confidential) will tackle the true story of a man who showed up in a small Missouri town to rid it of drugs before being exposed as a bank security guard. Clark Gregg (Choke) will pen the screenplay.
After watching his clout rise post-L.A. Confidential, Hanson has suffered through some commercial duds. Wonder Boys, Lucky You and In Her Shoes all failed to catch the attention of mainstream audiences. Only 8-Mile was a hit thanks to the star power of Eminem.
