Sex and the Broken City

Mandate Pictures has picked up 24-year-old playwright Brian Tucker’s first screenplay, “Broken City” says Variety.

Set against the backdrop of contemporary New York, story centers a former cop-turned-P.I., who, while attempting to turn his life around, finds himself thrust in the middle of the seedy backroom politics of a corrupt mayoral election.

Mandate is aiming to attach a director and cast in the summer.
