Producer Eric Eisner (“Hamlet 2”) has acquired the film and life rights to real-life con-man Craig Glazer’s autobiography “The King of Sting” says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story follows Craig Glazer, a colorful criminal who crisscrossed the U.S. for decades posing as an undercover cop and conducting drug stings, pocketing the money and drugs netted from his illegal operations.
Glazer and partner Don Woodbeck were so successful in their faux stings that they were hired by the Kansas attorney general. Their exploits ended abruptly when Woodbeck was killed in an attempt to land a final score.
Eisner and Glazer will produce.
