Heat‘s Michael Mann returns to the big smoke for another cop thriller

Michael Mann is returning to his roots with a gritty new cop thriller titled “The Big Stone Grid”.

Deadline say the film is…

…about two decorated detectives who uncover a terrifying extortion ring that operates within the secret underbelly of New York City. The plan is for Mann to do a pass with the scribe, but don’t be surprised if he relocates the action to L.A., where he made such crime sagas as Heat and Collateral.

Next for the filmmaker, “Go Like Hell”, about the sports car competition between Ford and Ferrari in the ’60s.
