Fields picks up ‘Wiseguy’ on Radar

Script written by multihyphenate Nicholas Celozzi

Ted Fields and his Radar Pictures banner will produce the mobster project “The Legitimate Wiseguy.”

Script is written by multihyphenate Nicholas Celozzi about the time when he first came to Hollywood to become an actor. At the time, he was sponsored by Tony Spilotro, a mob enforcer who was the inspiration behind the Joe Pesci character of Nicholas “Nicky” Santoro in Martin Scorsese’s 1995 film “Casino.”

Celozzi and Dimitri Logothetis will be producing “The Legitimate Wiseguy” along with Fields.

The trio previously worked on “The Outfit” TV series about Chicago 1960s mob boss Sam Giancana. Logothetis and Celozzi also produced the documentary “Momo: The Sam Giancana Story.”

Celozzi has written and produced “Nightmare Boulevard” and “The Lost Angel.”

Logothetis is producing a remake of the comedy “All of Me” along with John Davis at Dreamworks.
