This is a summary. To read the whole story subscribe to BostonGlobe.com

Canton native Chuck Hogan, whose novel “Prince of Thieves” became a fine film thanks to Ben Affleck — it was called “The Town” on the big screen — may be getting back into the movie business. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Joe Carnahan is in talks to direct an adaptation of Hogan’s novel “Devils in Exile.” (It would be called “Sugar Bandits.”) Hogan has written a screenplay for the book, which is about an Iraq war veteran who, facing a bleak future in Boston, gets involved in a criminal underworld of drugs and violence. Hogan’s other writing credits include “The Strain,” “The Fall,” and “The Night Eternal,” all co-written with Guillermo del Toro. Carnahan has directed thrillers such as “Narc” and “Smokin’ Aces.”
