Deadline reports: “Warner Bros closed a preemptive deal Friday night for American Blood, a 50-page proposal for a crime story by New Zealand-based bestselling author Ben Sanders … Bradley Cooper is attached to star and produce … This is the first of what is planned as a series of novels about Marshall Grade, an undercover NYPD officer turned mob informant. While living in the witness protection program in New Mexico, he is pulled into a dangerous investigation, which causes his past in New York to get wind of his whereabouts. The hope is for Cooper to play Grade.”
