Mark Williams has bought the rights to the novel, Double Cross, about the life of mobster Sam Giancana.
Alfonse Ruggiero Jr. has been hired to adapt the screenplay by Giancana's brother, Chuck Giancana, and his nephew, Sam Giancana. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the book tells the story of how the gangster rose from being a hit man for Al Capone to becoming a powerful don who had links to U.S. presidents including John F. Kennedy. Giancana, who was nicknamed 'Momo' because of his unpredictable vicious behavior, was assassinated in 1975 while cooking before he was to appear before a Senate committee investigating CIA and Mafia links to plots to kill Fidel Castro.
No production schedule is set for Double Cross.
