Don’t ever get caught napping in Hollywood, you want something, you go and get it.
Last week, NYPD detective Louis Eppolito and his badged-up buddy Steven Caracappa were sent down for their part in eight murders, a couple of attempted murders, a conspiracy to commit murder, laundering cash, obstruction of justice and distributing drugs. This week, their story is already being made into a movie.
Eppolito is apparently the 11th most decorated detective the NYPD has ever had and during his stint inside, he’s been using his free time to scribble Mafia Cop: The Story Of An Honest Cop Whose Family Was The Mob - which Mandalay pictures have acquired.
The screenplay will be penned by The Hurriance scriber Don Gordon, who was present during the three-week trial.
