Warner Bros. is poised to get into the mob business again. The studio has scooped up the rights to a screenplay about Al Capone's origins by scribe Walon Green (The Wild Bunch).
Capone will be portrayed by Stephen Graham is HBO's highly anticipated new show, Boardwalk Empire. Warner Bros. is obviously expecting a surge of interest in the legendary mobster.
Robert De Niro also famously played Capone to great acclaim in Brian DePalma's The Untouchables.
