We're a sucker for hard-boiled detective yarns, from Sam Spade to Mike Hammer. So our juices got flowing when we read about 'A Walk Among the Tombstones,' an adaptation of the Lawrence Block novel about Matthew Scudder, an alcoholic former cop who spends his retirement doing favors for friends, the kind that take him deep into the underbelly of New York City. When a heroin kingpin's wife is kidnapped and those kidnappers begin to send her back in pieces, Scudder gets involved.

'A Walk Among the Tombstones' is one of two films that DJ Caruso ('I Am Number Four,' 'Eagle Eye') is in discussions to direct, according to Deadline. The other is 'Preacher,' a John August-scripted film for Sony Pictures.
