RCR Pictures develops ‘Wolves’ crimer

Marc Maurino to pen script for indie based on Dennis Tafoya novel

Robin Schorr’s RCR Pictures has optioned feature rights to Dennis Tafoya’s crime novel “The Wolves of Fairmount Park.”

Marc Maurino (“Inside the Machine”) has been tapped to write the script.

Story follows the drive-by shooting of two suburban teens, one of whom is the son of a police officer, outside of a Philadelphia drug den. The search for gunmen strains the community to its breaking point.

Schorr will produce, while RCR’s veep of production, Dan Seligmann, will co-produce. Independent producer/manager Jarrod Murray will exec produce.

“Wolves” received strong reviews after its initial publication in 2010, but Tafoya refused to sell the film rights until the producers won him over.

Maurino recently sold the spec “Inside the Machine” to CBS Films, which preemptively purchased his first script two days after it hit the town. He has been offered several projects, but chose “Wolves” to be his next writing assignment.

RCR Pictures continues to develop the Max Landis-penned action-comedy “Good Time Gang.”

Maurino is repped by UTA and Circle of Confusion. Tafoya is with Brooke Ehrlich Management.
