The story follows notorious '70s drug dealer Jon Roberts who moved from New York, where he was involved in gangland takeovers of the city's nightclubs, to Miami where he was set up with a powerful drug cartel.
The film will be based on the book "American Desperado: My Life As A Cocaine Cowboy" by Roberts and "Generation Kill" author Evan Wright. Wright penned the most recent draft of the script, while Monahan is expected to incorporate more of the book back into the script.
