‘Gods of Mischief’ Biker Gang Movie in Development

Hyperion Media Group and Identity Films have picked up the rights to George Rowe’s “Gods of Mischief: My Undercover Vendetta to Take Down the Vagos Outlaw Motorcycle Gang,” Variety has learned exclusively.

Rowe voluntarily infiltrated the Vagos a decade ago via “Operation 22 Green,” which led to convictions of members of the gang. Rowe was attempting to exact revenge for the killing of a friend by the Vagos.

Hyperion and Identity have tapped Mikko Alanne, the screenwriter for Chilean mining rescue drama “The 33.” Alanne recently wrote “Churchill and Roosevelt” for Angelina Jolie.

Michael Mailis will produce for Hyperion, alongside Anthony Mastromauro for Identity.

Mailis was an executive producer on Sundance film “The Hallow,” which sold recently to IFC. Mastromauro recently produced “Louder Than Words” and is developing “The Old Man and the Gun” with Robert Redford producing and David Lowery attached to direct. Alanne is repped by CAA and Media Talent Group.
