Matthew Modine wants to "Walk Like a Man" and has come on board to produce and direct his adaptation of Donald Honig's novel set during the final months of the Civil War.
Modine's Cinco Dedos Peliculas production banner acquired the move rights to "Walk Like A Man," a tale of a 15-year-old boy attempting to prove his uncle's innocence and save him from a traitor's fate.
Modine was seen recently in Steve Jobs biopic "Jobs" as John Sculley and in "The Dark Knight Rises" as Deputy Commissioner Peter Foley.
Honig is repped by Lukas Ortiz at the Phillip Spitzer Literary Agency. Modine is repped by APA.
