Project is based on the Los Angeles Times’ seven-part series ”Tales From the Gangster Squad,” which Warner acquired the rights two years ago. The articles, penned by Paul Lieberman, chronicled the LAPD’s struggle with increasing crime and corruption in the 1940s by forming the Gangster Squad to keep East Coast organized crime figures out of Los Angeles. Nolte will be seen next in ”Warrior” and he’s been shooting ”Parker” with Jason Statham, Jennifer Lopez and Michael Chiklis. He’s repped by CAA.
