O'Keefe & Staples Are "Apaches"

Sean O'Keefe and Will Staples ("World's Most Wanted," "The Cruelest Miles") are the latest scribes to take a stab at adapting Lorenzo Carcaterra's novel "Apaches" for Jerry Bruckheimer Films says Variety.

The story will be loosely based on the gritty crime novel that revolves around a group of retired New York City cops who form a renegade unit to bring down the most vicious criminals in Gotham.

Bruckheimer has been developing the project since 1997 when he picked up the rights from Carcaterra who also penned "Sleepers". Marshall Todd ("Bad Boys II"), John Ridley, John Fusco ("The Forbidden Kingdom") and David Klass ("Walking Tall") have made previous attempts to adapt the script.
