Based on the documentary of the same name will be directed by Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights) with Mark Wahlberg producing and possibly starring. Leonardo DiCaprio was previously rumored to be involved with the project but nothing was confirmed. The real life story is what eventually inspired both Miami Vice and Scarface. "In the 1980s, ruthless Colombian cocaine barons invaded Miami with a brand of violence unseen in this country since Prohibition-era Chicago - and it put the city on the map. "Cocaine Cowboys" is the true story of how Miami became the drug, murder and cash capital of the United States, told by the people who made it all happen." The film will focus on the infamous American drug trafficers Jon Roberts and Micky Munday. Now this is the type of movie Berg "should" be directing before any of this other rumored projects.
