Rodriguez Tapped to Pen Gun With Occasional Music


Screenwriter Javier Rodriguez will adapt the 1994 Jonathan Lethem novel “Gun With Occasional Music” for Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans producers Gabe and Alan Polsky.

The Hollywood Reporter says the sci-fi noir hybrid “follows an archetypal private eye through Oakland and San Francisco as he delves into the murder of a prominent urologist in a futuristic world that includes supersmart children, erotic nerve-swapping and a menacing kangaroo that works for the mob.”

The Polsky brothers also have in development adaptations of John Williams’ “Butcher’s Crossing” and Christopher Buckley’s “God Is My Broker.”
