Bill Monahan, Oscar winning screenwriter of The Departed is teaming up once again with Producer Graham King to adapt an article appearing in Playboy this year. The story is about a drug dealer who trades prison clothes for a straight jacket (not literally), going undercover at a mental hospital to get a serial killer to divulge the location of his victims. Apparently, the story comes from real life.
I hope if I’m ever in prison, I get a similar sort of plea-bargain. Let’s hope Bill’s got another doozy up his sleeve, this one sounds fun.
