The Tracking Board has been able to obtain exclusive information that Brett Ratner (Black Mass) and his company RatPac Entertainment are up and running over a full-length fictional remake of the documentary Playing for the Mob , first shown in the ESPN series 30 for 30.|
The original tells the story of the infamous scandal involving mobster Henry Hill, who was convicted of organizing fixed basketball matches during the 1978-1979 game season.
The name Henry Hill is known to moviegoers from Martin Scorsese's cult film Goodfellas, where the gangster was played by Ray Liott. The filmmaker focused on the story of Hill's ascent and his involvement in the robbery of John F Kennedy International Airport . However, Nicefellas neglected a curious part of Henry 's life - in 1978 he organized basketball match fixing in Boston, giving bribes right and left. In the documentary Playing for the Mob , players, federal investigators and Hill himself, who died shortly after the interview, told about the events of those years.
Details of the future project have not yet been disclosed, but insiders claim that the film will tell not only about the gangster's involvement in sports machinations, but also basketball of those years as such.
