Michael Mann is in talks to direct the cop thriller "The Big Stone Grid" says Deadline.
S. Craig Zahler's spec script follows two decorated detectives who uncover a terrifying extortion ring that operates within the secret underbelly of New York City.
Mann will do another pass on the script with Zahler where they could have the location shift to Los Angeles.
Michael De Luca is producing.
Mann will most likely helm a film adaptation of author A.J. Baime's book Go Like Hell before "Grid" which traces the now legendary 1966 Le Mans Grand Prix that turned into a fierce contest between Ford and Ferrari, and ultimately saw Ford become the first American team to achieve victory in France
