via Criterion Daily:

Robert Towne, the renowned screenwriter behind Chinatown (1974), has written an adaptation of James Crumley’s 1983 novel Dancing Bear that he and producer Mike Medavoy have been aiming to turn into a feature. Now Towne’s rewritten it as an hour-long pilot for USA Network, reports Deadline’s Mike Fleming Jr. Mel Gibson, who’s all set to direct, tells him: “It’s basically Chinatown set in a 7-11 in Montana in the ’70s with a whole lot of cocaine.”
