Director Wayne Kramer (Running Scared) has signed on to make ‘Pretty Boy Floyd’, a crime thriller about 20s and 30s bank robber Charles Arthur Floyd.
Kevin Bernhardt wrote the screenplay, which is based on the life of Floyd. The criminal was known as the Robin Hood of the Cookson Hills before his death due to a gunshot wound in the gut at the age of 30.
“My approach is to bring 21st century style and energy to Kevin Bernhardt’s meticulously researched screenplay without sacrificing the verisimilitude of the period or over-sensationalizing the characters themselves,” says Kramer. “At the heart of Pretty Boy Floyd is a great love story about an outlaw on the run who can’t stay away from the woman he loves, no matter how destructive the relationship is for both of them — which ultimately leads to his demise.”
