Well, it appears that studios are once again hip to the fact that some viewers really enjoy compelling stories and contextual violence. For that reason, it appears as though mob movies are back in full swing with the latest being Ness/Capone, a take on the cat-and-mouse relationship that is decidedly different from DePalma’s The Untouchables. Ness/Capone seems to suggest a more taunting, prideful dynamic between the G-Man and the mob boss.

Of course, because it’s not possible for Hollywood to have just one of any type of film in development at a time, we feel obligated to report that Warner Bros. has gotten cracking on Cicero, a Capone film that outlines his rise to power, which also sounds kind of awesome. David Yates, director of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 has expressed interest in Cicero, though he’s not yet attached.

Warner is also getting dirty with Gangster Squad, which is a historical mob pic that focuses on LA kingpin Mickey Cohen (played by Sean Penn) and also will star Ryan Gosling and Josh Brolin.

Rather than promoting a clear favorite, I really just hope all three of these get made. They sound awesome.  (Deadline)
