Oscar-nommed scribes to adapt “Power Of The Dog” epic bestseller

PanARMENIAN.Net - Nikolaj Arcel and Rasmus Heisterberg, who scripted the Swedish The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and followed with the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar nominee A Royal Affair, have found their next project. It’s a feature adaptation of The Power Of The Dog, the epic Don Winslow bestseller framed around the drug war and a 30-year struggle between a hard DEA agent and a family of cartel kingpins in Mexico, Deadline said.

Arcel will direct, and the script will be written by Heisterberg, Arcel and Shane Salerno. Salerno will produce through The Story Factory. This is the same Salerno who wrote, directed, produced and financed the J.D. Salinger documentary Salinger that earlier this week was licensed in the U.S. for an American Masters broadcast and is being shopped for feature distribution after a companion biography sold in a 7-figure deal to Simon & Schuster.

Winslow’s masterwork, The Power Of The Dog, offers sprawling story lines that span from New York to Tijuana and involve DEA agents, an Irish hit man, vicious drug lords and mobsters, and a heroine whose loyalties are divided between a cartel leader, a crusading priest and the destructively obsessed DEA agent.
