Earlier this week, we reported that Oscar-winning writer-director William Monahan (London Boulevard) was on the shortlist to helm an adaptation of Ken Bruen’s crime novel Once Were Cops, which is about “two unlikely partners become a devastatingly effective force in the war against crime.” However, Monahan has now told us,
“I’m not on any short list for Once Were Cops, I never even heard about it.”
Monahan is already keeping plenty busy. You can read all about his other projects in the recent extensive interview he did with Steve. In the interview, Monahan talks about London Boulevard as well as Becket, The Gamblers, Tripoli, Blood Meridian, and Oblivion.
