Producer Jerry Bruckheimer's patience has been highlighted today with Variety reporting that a project he's been developing for 12 years is finally gaining some traction. His company has hired Sean O'Keefe and Will Staples to flesh out a script for Apaches, based on Lorenzo Carcaterra's novel about a group of renegade cops.

The Disney-based producer has been developing the project since 1997, when the studio picked up the book for Bruckheimer to produce for Touchstone as a potential franchise. Carcaterra, who's written and produced episodes of "Law and Order," and whose books include "Sleepers," followed up "Apaches" with the 2007 sequel novel "Chasers."

Plot Concept: The script for "Apaches" will be loosely based on the gritty crime novel that revolves around a group of retired New York City cops who form a renegade unit to bring down the most vicious criminals in Gotham.

Gotham? Is Batman on vacation? Not exactly an original idea but we must be missing something because a movie with such a typical plot shouldn't take 12 years to develope. Need more info...

I never read the book but I have heard of it. I agree with chopsaki in saying that this isn't a movie that should take so long to make. This sounds like a straight to dvd movie like Death Sentence (Kevin Bacon) was in.

I actually got a kick out of this movie to. But don't try to hype something this formulated up
