‘Gangster’ Guys Cut With Knife

Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment are following up on the success of “American Gangster” with the true-crime drama “The Knife” reports Variety.

The project, which Brian Grazer will produce, is based on an investigative article by Guy Lawson that will be published in the January issue of GQ.

The title refers to the code name given to a Crips member in Los Angeles’ South Central who became an informant and collaborated for a decade with FBI agent Tim Flaherty to crack murder, drug and arms-deal cases.
