Cirulnick Celebrates “Havana Nocturne”

Matt Cirulnick has signed on to pen an adaptation of T.J. English’s 50’s Cuban gangster-themed best-seller “Havana Nocturne” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story centers on a group of mainly American gangsters in Batista’s Cuba, particularly Meyer Lansky, who run the freewheeling country’s casinos, nightclubs and other debaucherous businesses, and the rivalries that emerge as they lead the high life.

But the good times of their so-called “mobsters paradise” threaten to end when Castro’s rebels and the Cuban Revolution begin to gather steam.

Eric Eisner (“Hamlet 2”), Gil Adler (“Superman Returns”), and Shane McCarthy will produce.
