Ben Stiller is ready to take on some crooked cops with The Seven Five, a film based on the documentary of the same name. The doc, which is pretty damn great, tells the story of some very, very dirty NYPD cops who reigned in the 1980s. At one point, White Boy Rick director Yann Demange was going to direct a feature adaptation for Sony, with The Queen’s Gambit scribe Scott Frank tackling the script. Now, the project is over at MGM, and Stiller hopes to direct from a script he worked on with Tony McNamara (The Favourite).
