‘Gangster’ a go again

Universal Pictures and Imagine are ready to give “American Gangster” another chance with “Hotel Rwanda” writer-director Terry George, having pulled the plug on director Antoine Fuqua and stars Denzel Washington and Benicio Del Toro last October. Speculation has begun that George’s “Rwanda” star Don Cheadle will be drafted to play the lead role of Frank Lucas, the mastermind of a scheme to smuggle heroin into the U.S. in the caskets of soldiers killed in Vietnam.
