Fox to film Johnny Handsome biopic

Image The Tracking Board shares exclusive information that 20th Century Fox and Davis Entertainment have begun work on the biopic of the infamous mobster Johnny Roselli , nicknamed Handsome Johnny in criminal circles.

The film is produced by John Davis and Ira Napoliello, and will be overseen by Michael Ireland.

The gangster, whose real name is Filippo Sacco , was born in 1905 in Italy. Roselli worked closely with the Chicago mafia, and in the end he managed to establish contacts with the criminal families of Los Angeles. Later, John became a representative of the mafia clans in Las Vegas and even managed to work as a Hollywood producer. Rumor has it that it was Roselli who forced the president of Columbia Pictures to sign a contract with Marilyn Monroe, unknown at that time. But he went down in history thanks to his participation in a secret CIA operation, the purpose of which was to eliminate the Cuban leader Fidel Castro. And in 1976, the gangster was even brought in as a witness in the attempted assassination of President Kennedy. However, soon the body of the murdered mafioso was found in a barrel of gasoline floating off the coast of Miami.


Recent projects of John Davis as a producer include the spy thriller Agents of ANKL. starring Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill, the horror film Frankenstein and the biographical drama Joy by David O. Russell.
