David Ayer Keeps A Watchful Eye on "Mafia Cop"



David Ayer will rewrite and direct "Mafia Cop" for Mandalay and Universal Pictures.

Attached to a double duty job, David Ayer has been confirmed to be in charge to rewrite and direct police hitman saga "Mafia Cop", an action drama coming from Mandalay and Universal Pictures.

Intended to be made based on the life and story of Louis Eppolito, the project was secured by Mandalay after the company managed to win the rights to film his life account as well as to "Mafia Cop: The Story of an Honest Cop Whose Family Was the Mob", the novel he wrote with Bob Drury. The first draft of the film initially was penned by Dan Gordon with David Zelon serving as producer.

Being so, the film thus will center on the life of Eppolito as he was found guilty of participating in murders alongside Stephen Caracappa while serving as an NYPD detective. Both of them were arrested last year after retiring from their jobs.

Ayer, a Champaign, Illinois-born filmmaker, initially worked as a screenwriter before made his directorial debut in "Harsh Times" which is set to unspool next month. His screenwriting works include those for "The Fast and the Furious", "Training Day", and "S.W.A.T."
