American Monument History

Image The phenomenal success of American Crime Story helped the writers and producers of the first season of FX Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski to sell to the studio Amazon the script of the film " Great Men " * ( Great Men ), reports The Tracking Board . The plot of the biographical drama is based on the book by John Tagliaferro "The Great White Fathers ".

The main character of the film will be the American sculptor Gutzon Borglum, famous for his work on portraits of Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln on Mount Rushmore. Gutzon was commissioned to create the memorial in 1924. He started the project three years later, when he was already 60 years old. Borglum died in March 1941, only eight months before the completion of work on the sculptural composition.

Despite the fact that the creation of the monument was carried out in extremely difficult conditions for a long 14 years, the construction cost no casualties, and the total estimate of one of the main attractions of North America was only $ 1 million .


In addition to American Crime Story , the writers have a track record of Ed Wood, The People vs. Larry Flynt, 1408, and Horror. Reportedly, Alexander and Karaszewski will be producing the new project.

The creative duo also plans to work on the biopic of the creator of the antivirus program McAfee John McAfee, whom the Belize police recognized as the main suspect in the murder of his neighbor four years ago.
