Nikolaj Arcel, director of foreign Oscar nominatee "A Royal Affair," and Rasmus Heisterberg, who penned the script, are set to adapt Don Winslow's epic besteller "The Power of the Dog." The two previously collaborated on scripting the Swedish "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo."

Winslow's novel follows a 30-year struggle between a dogged drug enforcement agent and family of cartel lords in Mexico. Arcel will helm, as well as co-write with Heisterberg and Shane Salerno.  Earlier this week Salerno made news as he is the co-author of the upcoming biography "The Private Hell of J.D. Salinger," as well as the director of documentary "Salinger" which was picked up by PBS (it will air as part of "American Masters" in early 2014.)

Salerno is familiar with Winslow's material; he adapted 2012's "Savages" for Oliver Stone, and is preparing to write "Satori" for Warner Bros. and Leonardo DiCaprio.
