NARCOS Co-Creator Developing Action-Thriller THE DEPUTY Starring William H. Macy, Tiffany Haddish, and Stephen Dorff — GeekTyrant

Narcos co-creator and co-writer Carlo Bernard is developing an action thriller film titled The Deputy with director Matt Sukkar, who is making his directorial debut. The movie is based on the novel by Victor Gischler.

The cast for the film includes Duke Nicholson (Us), William H. Macy (Fargo), Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip), Stephen Dorff (Blade), Jake Weary (Oh, Canada) and Julia Fox (Uncut Gems).

The official synopsis reads: “Part-time Deputy Toby Sawyer (Nicholson) is jolted awake by Chief Krueger (Macy) and assigned to guard a dead body until the coroner arrives. 

“When the corpse mysteriously vanishes, Toby launches a frantic search and unwittingly discovers decades of wrongdoing…and several cops who have turned a blind eye, including Deputy Billy Banks (Dorff) who pressures Toby to ignore his findings.

“Only Deputy Amanda Jackson (Haddish) appears trustworthy. Desperate to keep his job, Toby must unravel the town’s deep web of corruption before he and his career end up as dead as the missing cadaver.”

This sounds like it could make for an interesting and good movie and I like some of the members of the cast.

Highland Film Group CEO Arianne Fraser said in a statement: “We are excited to be working with seasoned filmmakers with such impressive credentials as Mark Canton and Carlo Bernard.

“We are confident that The Deputy will deliver all the action and thrills Victor Gischler infused in his novel. And it’s wonderful to be supporting Duke Nicholson as he launches his career – we believe he has a big future!”
