Warner Bros. Producing ‘Capone’ Film


Warner Bros. has purchased Walon Green’s screenplay about Al Capone’s origins. The story, titled ‘Cicero’, will be produced by John Lesher and Adam Kassan. Also, Leonard Ackerman, who was a producer on the Warner Bros. 1959 film ‘Al Capone’, will help produce the project. The script is set to detail the following:

“Capone’s rise from the slums of Brooklyn to the head of the criminal underworld in Chicago during Prohibition, when his gang operated casinos and speakeasies throughout the city. In order to operate outside Chicago city limits, the gangster set up headquarters in suburban Cicero, Ill., where he famously took over the city government in 1924.”
