Denzel Washington is in talks to star in the thriller “Little Things” for Warner Bros. Pictures.
The story follows a burned-out Kern County deputy sheriff named Deke (Washington) who teams with an LASD detective, Baxter, to apprehend a serial killer. Deke’s nose for the ‘little things’ proves eerily accurate, but his willingness to circumvent the rules embroils Baxter in a dilemma.
John Lee Hancock (“The Blind Side,” “The Highwaymen”) will pen and potentially direct, though a deal for the latter has yet to be worked out. Filming aims to begin this Summer.
