Mall Cop Redressed In Pink

With the threat of a writers strike looming, Sony Pictures has hired Steve Pink (“Grosse Pointe Blank,” “High Fidelity”) to polish up the screenplay for “Mall Cop”.

The comedy centers on a mild-mannered security guard who is thrust into action when his mall is taken over by highly organized thieves.

Kevin James, who is starring in the film and producing, penned the first draft and is eyeing a spring start of shooting for the comedy.
