Paramount Picks Up An “L.A. Rex”

Paramount Pictures has scored the rights to the Scott Rudin-produced “L.A. Rex” reports Variety.

Will Beall penned the novel and has adapted the script about an LAPD officer who becomes a mole investigating a crime against the head of the Mexican mafia.

He and his partner become involved in a web of corruption and retribution involving gangbangers and dirty cops. Rudin still hasn’t locked a director and cast as yet.

Beall is finishing up the script for “Gangster Squad” and is penning the “Logan’s Run” remake.
