David Ayer is on the “Mafia Cop” beat after inking a deal to rewrite and direct the police hitman saga for Mandalay and Universal Pictures. Project is based on the life and story of Louis Eppolito, who was convicted this past spring of murdering for the mob while serving as an NYPD detective. Mandalay had won rights to Eppolito’s life rights as well as to a book he wrote with Bob Drury, “Mafia Cop: The Story of an Honest Cop Whose Family Was the Mob.”
