  • Relativity Media has acquired "Ness/Capone", a Black List screenplay written by Grant Pierce Myers.

  • The story centers on the epic battle between Eliot Ness and Al Capone during the Prohibition Era in the 1920s.
    That battle was also chronicled in the Brian DePalma-directed movie "The Untouchables" where Ness was portrayed by Kevin Costner.

  • Myers' script gives a much different version of Ness.
    He is described as a skirt-chasing 26-year old publicity hound who seemed to get an adrenaline charge out of courting danger, kicking in doors, smashing moonshine stores and rubbing it in the noses of Capone and other mobsters. He paraded confiscated bootleg trucks past Capone's hotel, calling Capone in advance to suggest he look out the window.
