Oren Moverman (“The Messenger”) is attached to direct and write “Rampart,” centered on the widespread corruption in the anti-gang unit of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Rampart Division in the late 1990s.

Project’s being developed at Lightstream Pictures, the production banner headed by Lawrence Inglee and Paul Currie. Clark Peterson (“Monster”) is also producing.

“Rampart” is focused on a single police officer during the scandal and based on a story by James Ellroy. More than 70 officers were implicated in misconduct including unprovoked shootings, beatings, planting of evidence, framing of suspects, stealing and dealing narcotics, bank robbery, perjury and covering up evidence.

Inglee was a producer on military drama “The Messenger,” starring Woody Harrelson, Ben Foster and Samantha Morton with a script by Moverman and Alessandro Camon. “The Messenger” was Moverman’s directorial debut after penning scripts for Todd Haynes’ Bob Dylan biopic “I’m Not There” and Ira Sachs’ “Married Life.”
