Bean takes dip in Universal’s ‘River’

Writer-director Henry Bean has landed “Down by the River” for Universal. Bean will serve double duty on the film, an adaptation of Charles Bowden’s book about drug deals on both sides of the border. Scott Stuber and Mary Parent are producing along with Peter Landesman and Naomi Despres. Story revolves around a 1995 murder in El Paso, Texas, that was originally believed to be the result of a botched carjacking but was later tied to the victim’s brother’s work busting drug runners for the Drug Enforcement Administration. Story eventually implicates the uppermost reaches of the Mexican government.
