The Lost Son: A Life in Pursuit of Justice: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Miramax Films has inked journalist and screenwriter Richard Regen to adapt for the big screen former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik's autobiography The Lost Son: A Life in Pursuit of Justice.

One-time Miramax staffer Rick Schwartz, who recently executive produced Martin Scorsese's The Aviator, will produce the as-yet-untitled Kerik project.

Kerik's tome, published by HarperCollins/Regan Books in 2001, chronicles the former cop's rise from uniformed street officer to fearless undercover narcotics detective. He eventually goes on to assume leadership of an elite unit that takes down Colombia's infamous Cali cocaine cartel, among other accomplishments.
