Warners Bros is developing SIS, a cop drama in the vein of Training Day. Chris Gorak, a noted art director whose credits include Fight Club and Minority Report, is attached to direct and write the screenplay.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, casting is presently under way for the project.
SIS began life several years ago as In-Crime, with Kurt Sutter, a showrunner on FX's The Shield, penning the first draft of the script and initally attached to direct. Russell Gewirtz, who wrote the Spike Lee hostage film Inside Man and Overture Films' upcoming Robert De Niro-Al Pacino cop drama Righteous Kill, also subsequently wrote a draft of the screenplay.
SIS stands for special investigations section, a unit of the police force built to combat some of the most brutal criminals while they are in the midst of committing crimes, and often operates under looser restrictions than a traditional police unit. The feature will center on characters in the SIS unit of the LAPD.
No production date has been set, although SIS reportedly has a soft green light.
