George Mastras to adapt 90 Church

bad

With Breaking Bad now airing its final season on AMC, screenwriter George Mastras is now in talks to adapt author Dean Unkefer’s 90 Church: The True Story of the Narcotics Squad From Hell. The novel is a fictionalized account of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics unit in New York City that tackled drug trafficking and organized crime from the 1960s to the early 1970s. Rupert Sanders, who directed Snow White and the Huntsman, is set to take on the project with Universal Pictures. Mastras received an Emmy nomination for his work on the fifth season of Breaking Bad, and will apparently have plenty of material to work with as the novel encompasses the entire operation of informants and under-the-table deals. The novel is set to hit stores this September, so a film project may still be a ways away, but with Mastras behind the wheel it may pick up speed sooner than we think.
