Catfish Guys Chuck A “Monkey Wrench”

“Catfish” filmmakers Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman are set to write and direct an adaptation of Edward Abbey’s 1975 irreverent comedic novel “The Monkey Wrench Gang” says Deadline.

The story follows four guys who try to battle over-development in the American West in the 70s by bumbling attempts at sabotage and industrial espionage.

While three of the guys have no intention of harming anyone, the fourth is a young Vietnam vet who wants to blow shit up.

Edward R. Pressman and Gary Burden are producing the project which has been in development for around 15 years.
