Salvati: According to Variety, Roy Freirich is writing Salvati for DreamWorks.

The pic is based on the true story of Joseph Salvati, who was wrongly sentenced to life in prison for a 1965 murder that was commited by an FBI informer.

After a 20-year legal battle and 30 years in jail, Salvati proved his innocence and unwittingly uncovered a conspiracy between the FBI and the Mafia, dating back to FBI boss J. Edgar Hoover's era.
