Jump Street directors jump to Carter Beats The Devil

The Hollywood Reporter says that 21 Jump Street directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are in talks to direct Carter Beats The Devil.

Based on the superb 2001 novel by Glen David Gold -- which features Houdini in a small but significant role as Carter's inspiration and mentor -- the movie has long been in development. Paramount originally optioned the book in 2002 for Tom Cruise to star and produce. Once that deal lapsed, AMC took a stab at turning it into a TV series.

In 2010 the project got back on track when Michael Gilio was tapped to write the screenplay with Jon Shestack producing for Warner Bros. Now it looks like it's taken another step forward.
