  • Curtis Hanson ("L.A. Confidential") is in talks to direct a film based on Bill Anthony Jakob, a 36-year-old bank security guard who was indicted on a 23-count federal indictment for impersonating a law enforcement officer in a small Missouri town.

  • Clark Gregg will write the script about the mystery man who showed up to a small Missouri town and led a crackdown that cleaned up a scourge of meth labs -- only to be exposed as a bank security guard with a Walter Mitty complex and a phony badge.
