Earl’s Last Laugh

Exiled in retirement after Fajitagate, ex–Police Chief Earl Sanders has re-emerged with a fresh account of the infamous Zebra murders. And his critics are on the warpath.

Yet, despite having climbed to the top after four turbulent decades in law enforcement, Sanders is still defending his honor. "Am I pleased with the way the book and everything has turned out? I think so," beams the ex-chief. He says it with the manner of a man who expects to have the last laugh.

He just might.

The Zebra Murders has been optioned by Plan B, actor Brad Pitt's production company, for adaptation as a movie. A source familiar with the matter says that Plan B is on board to develop the film for DreamWorks Pictures, and that an announcement by the studio may be forthcoming in several weeks.

Among the actors' names being floated to portray the two black Zebra murders sleuths are Jamie Foxx and Will Smith. But if it happens, the real star will almost certainly be Earl Sanders.
