It looks like Carl Franklin is directing a film for New Line Cinema. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Franklin will be making Snitch, which is based on a PBS Frontline documentary from a few years ago.

The original documentary followed a devoted father whose son is sent to jail after being pinched in a drug sting operation. The father eventually goes undercover into the world of drugs to find a way to free his son.

The thriller will be produced by Guy East and Nigel Sinclair through their own Spitfire Pictures. There was no word on when the film would go into production.
