Detail from "LAbyrinth" book cover

UK production house Good Films has acquired the rights to Randall Sullivan's investigative book "LAbyrinth," detailing the true events surrounding detective Russell Poole's investigation into a notorious L.A. bank robbery. The book was originally serialized in Rolling Stone magazine.

The evidence uncovered by Poole implicates many members of the LAPD to the robbery, and links them to the payroll of Death Row Records, founded by Suge Knight and Dr. Dre. The label is known to have signed many big hip-hop names, including Dre, Snoop Dogg and Tupac. The film will look at the world of renegade cops, racial tensions, hip-hop celebrities and the political nightmare surrounding the unresolved murders of Biggie Smalls and Tupac.

"LAbyrinth" completes Good Films' slate of projects with budgets between $10-$52 million, the first of which goes into production in summer 2013. FilmNation will sell the project in Berlin.
