George Mastras

Breaking Bad is the talk of the town right now (and you can check out our very own town-talk right here), so that means that anyone and everyone involved in the show is looking to get a nice big meth-fueled career boost.

George Mastras is just one of those folks. You might not remember his name, but Mastras has been writing episodes of Breaking Bad since the series’ inception, and currently has an Emmy nomination for last year’s ‘Dead Freight’ (wherein a train is robbed and drained of its precious cargo).

Now, Mastras is looking to break into the world of feature films. He’ll be adapting Dean Unkefer’s “90 Church: The True Story of the Narcotics Squad from Hell” to be directed by Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman). “90 Church” tells of the formation of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, and how a paltry number of agents used unorthodox, violent methods to take down organized syndicates that could easily outman and outgun them. Unkefer is one of the very agents who worked in the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, yet strangely enough, the film is a “fictionalized” re-telling of true events.

That last part doesn’t bode well for the project (as does the story’s resemblance to this year’s mediocre Gangster Squad), but the presence of Mastras is presumably enough to balance out any ill omens. Hopefully 90 Church will be just as exciting as watching men siphon gas out of a passing train.
