Paramount, Appian To Produce “Corporation”

Paramount Pictures and Appian Way have won the film rights to T.J. English’s upcoming Cuban mob crime novel “The Corporation”. T.J. English’s book is based on the real life saga of the Cuban mob from the 1950s to the 80s in Miami and New York.

Benicio Del Toro is attached to star as Jose Miguel Battle Sr., the leader of the powerful Cuban mafia who was trained by the CIA, imprisoned, and then returned to the U.S. to begin building a crime empire that dabbled in gambling, drug trafficking and murder.

David Matthews will adapt the script while Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Davisson, Andrew Rona, Jaydee Freixas, Tony Gonzalez and Alex Heineman are producing.
