Che collaborators Peter Buchman and Steven Soderbergh are reteaming for Making Jack Falcone, an undercover mob story that has been set up at Paramount.
The Hollywood Reporter says Buchman is writing the script, and Soderbergh will executive produce the project, which tells the story of Joaquin “Jack” Garcia, also known as Jack Falcone, a Cuban-American FBI agent who successfully went undercover in the Gambino crime family.
Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher will produce via their Double Feature Films. Soderbergh is said to be on board to read drafts of the script and offer other guidance on the project.
“Falcone” is based on the eponymous Simon & Schuster/Touchstone novel published last month.
