Sony taps ‘The Town’ writer for adaptation

Peter Craig to pen 'Fathers and Guns' for Columbia

Sony has tapped “The Town” scripter Peter Craig to adapt the French Canadian hit “Fathers and Guns” for Columbia Pictures.

Comedy-thriller, about a father-son cop duo assigned to investigate an outdoor adventure group for fathers and sons, is being developed and produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall.

The original pic, “De pere en flic,” became one of Quebec’s biggest local hits when it launched there in summer 2009 and earned more than $10 million.

Pic’s producer Denise Robert and writer-director Emile Gaudreault will share producing credits on Sony’s remake.

Warner Bros.’ “The Town,” which grossed nearly $90 million domestically, was Craig’s first screenwriting credit.

He is currently working on a script for Sony’s “Bad Boys 3.”

Craig is repped by CAA and Management 360.
