Warner Bros. is paying David Mamet seven figures to write a screenplay about legendary gangster John Dillinger, and the studio is in talks with queer filmmaker Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don't Cry) to direct, reports Variety. George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh will be among the project's producers. Peirce, who has long wanted to make a film about Dillinger, is currently developing the screen version of Arthur C. Clarke's Childhood's End; Mamet has previously explored the world of gangsters with his screenplay The Untouchables.
