“Avengers: Infinity War” directors Joe and Anthony Russo will adapt Evan Ratliff’s series of investigative articles for long-form nonfiction Atavist Magazine into a crime drama for FX titled “The Mastermind”.
The story revolves around Paul Le Roux, a former programmer and criminal cartel boss-turned-Drug Enforcement Administration informant.
The Russos will both executive produce and direct the drama, which is currently in development. Joining them as executive producers are “Fargo” showrunner Noah Hawley, “The Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman and “Powers” producer Dave Alpert.
With the Russos both busy with the next “Avengers” films for much of the rest of the year, don’t expect to see much movement on this until well into next year.
