Warner Bros. has acquired the film rights to Richard Lange's critically acclaimed novel "Angel Baby". No producer is presently attached.

The story revolves around the wife of a Mexican Drug Cartel leader. She escapes his compound in Tijuana with a backpack full of cash with the intent of reuniting with her young daughter in Los Angeles before her husband tracks her down.

Meanwhile, "The Sopranos" actor Frank Vincent's 2006 self-help book "A Guy's Guide to Being A Man's Man" is being adapted into a feature-length dark comedy with the same kind of tone as "Horrible Bosses".

Adam 'Tex' Davis ("Just Friends," "Ride Along") will adapt the script and produce. Vincent will also play a part in the film.
