Universal picks up rights to 'Creed'

16 October 2008 3:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Universal has picked up film rights to "The Creed of Violence," a Western-cum-gangster novel by Boston Teran.

The manuscript went out to publishers last week and immediately generated interest from producers. Universal picked up the book pre-emptively after a negotiationing session that culminated with a seven-figure deal at 5:45 a.m.

"Creed" remains in negotiations with publishers.

The book, set in the 1930s West, is a father-and-son redemption story that follows a federal agent who catches a gunrunner and forces the man to lead him to the head mobster in Mexico. What the agent doesn't realize is that the gunrunner is his long-lost son.

Universal's Tracy Falco will oversee development of the project for the studio.

Teran, based in New York, also has written "God Is a Bullet" and "River of Night." He's repped by the Natasha Kern Literary Agency and Donald V. Allen Management. »
