David Mamet to Adapt Don Winslow NYPD Novel ‘THE FORCE’ For James Mangold

June 20, 2017

James Mangold

David Mamet will adapt Don Winslow’s NYPD cop corruption novel THE FORCE, which will be directed by James Mangold.

Set at FOX, the novel revolves around an elite group of detectives galvanized by their tough guy leader Denny Malone. Much in the spirit of Sidney Lumen’s Gotham-based thrillers, the top cop crosses slowly crosses moral lines, justifying them with results, until he eventually finds himself way on the wrong side of the lines with little choice but to become a rat against his crew of crooked cops if he wants to stay out of prison.

Mangold will direct. Ridley Scott, Shane Salerno and Kevin Walsh will produce.
