Scribe Dan Gordon (The Hurricane) has signed on to write a screenplay for The King of Sting, a drama about the life of con man Craig Glazer.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story is based on Glazer's eponymous book, about the author's 20-year exploits canvassing the country posing as an undercover narcotics agent and pocketing money from stings. Glazer and a partner were so adept at conning victims that the Kansas City Police Department hired them to conduct real stings.

No production date has been set.
