Director Carl Franklin (“Out of Time”) is set to helm the New Line Cinema thriller “Snitch” for Spitfire Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.
Inspired by true events chronicled in a PBS “Frontline” documentary, “Snitch” centers on a devoted father whose son faces 30 years in prison after being set up in a drug deal.
The father goes undercover in the drug world to make a bust that will free his son. Justin Haythe, who wrote the screenplay, will executive produce. Franklin will get to work on this once he wraps Screen Gems “The Maintenance Man.”
