Writer hired to adapt true-life story of narcotics agent impostor

Dan Gordon (The Hurricane, Wyatt Earp), who recently wrote drafts of the upcoming mobster film Mafia Cop and the remake of Charles Bronson’s seminal 70s hitman thriller The Mechanic, has been hired to write the script for The King of Sting, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The upcoming drama revolves around the life of con man Craig Glazer, and will be based on Glazer’s book, which reveals the author’s 20-year grifting career canvassing the country posing as an undercover narcotics agent and pocketing money from sting operations. Glazer and a partner were so proficient at conning victims that the Kansas City Police Department hired them to conduct actual stings.
