Miramax & Rudin Lead A Lush Life

Miramax Films and producer Scott Rudin (“No Country for Old Men”) have acquired screen rights to the Richard Price novel “Lush Life” reports Variety.

“Lush Life” is set up as a police procedural in which a restaurant manager and his bartender set out to walk a drunken friend home on New York’s Lower East Side.

One of the men winds up on the wrong end of a bullet, and a murder investigation reveals much about the city and the characters involved in a mugging gone wrong.

Price, who will adapt his own work, recently won the Edgar Award for his script work on HBO series “The Wire”.
