Peter Craig to write ‘The Ghostman’ for WB

Scribe of 'The Town' will adapt Roger Hobbs casino heist tome

“The Town” scribe Peter Craig is looking to stay in the world of bank robbers, with Warner Bros. bringing on the writer to pen the adaptation of the book “The Ghostman.”

Based on the tome by Roger Hobbs, the story follows a man who cleans up problems and helps fugitives disappear. The character is persistent on staying out of trouble until he is dragged into a casino heist gone bad with his mentor caught in the middle.

The Ghostman has 48 hours to clean up the mess before his mentor is taken out by a ruthless kingpin.

Kevin McCormick will produce through his Langley Park banner and the project is looked at as a major priority at the studio.

WB paid in the high six-low seven figure range to acquire the rights to the book after it was brought in by Langley Park exec Rory Koslow.

He is repped by CAA, Management 360 and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush, Kaller.
