Pressman is also developing “Happy Valley,” which Brian De Palma will direct, about Penn State football coach Joe Paterno. Al Pacino will star. Shingle is also rebooting “The Crow” with Relativity Media; Javier Gutierrez will direct.

“Cruisin’ for a Bruisin'” is the second project to come out of Blum-Hanson-Allen’s development fund after “Lawless.”
