Written by Robb and Marc Cullen, and featured on the 2008 Black List (a Hollywood insider list of the best unproduced screenplays of the year), The film stars Tracy Morgan and Bruce Willis as two veteran LAPD detectives who attempt to track down a stolen, mint-condition, 1952 baseball card, get tangled with a sports memorabilia-obsessed gangster, and rescue a Mexican beauty named Gabriela (Ana de la Reguera), who might hold the key to millions in laundered drug money.
