Apaches rewrite

Jerry Bruckheimer's adaptation of Lorenzo Carcaterra's gritty cop drama APACHES has been stalled in development since 1997, but he'll be damned if he’s going to let it die! And two new writers appear to be just what the doctor ordered.

Bruckheimer has brought Sean O'Keefe and Will Staples on board, who have two hot scripts circulating right now, WORLD’S MOST WANTED for Universal and an adaptation of THE CRUELEST MILES for Walden Media.

But behind them lies a long trail of fallen writers who have tried to adapt APACHES over the years, which includes Marshall Todd ("Bad Boys II"), John Ridley, John Fusco ("The Forbidden Kingdom") and David Klass ("Walking Tall"). But hey, best of luck!

The book follows a group of retired NYC cops who band together to take down the worst criminals in the city. Admittedly a pretty badass concept, but one has to wonder just what the hell is wrong with the project to devour that many writers and take twelve years to move an inch?

Extra Tidbit: DeNiro, Pacino, Eastwood, Rourke. Done.
