Williams picks up film about Giancana

14 November 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Producer Mark Williams has acquired the film rights to the novel Double Cross, about the life of mobster Sam Giancana, hiring Edgar Allan Poe Award winner Alfonse Ruggiero Jr. to script the adaptation.

Written by Giancana's brother, Chuck Giancana, and his nephew, Sam Giancana, the book tells the story of how the gangster rose from being a hit man for Al Capone to becoming a powerful don who had links to U.S. presidents including John F. Kennedy. Giancana, who was nicknamed "Momo" because of his unpredictable vicious behavior, was assassinated in 1975 while cooking before he was to appear before a Senate committee investigating CIA and Mafia links to plots to kill Fidel Castro. »
