One of the most infamous moments in Western New York history is getting the big-screen movie treatment.
Doug Liman -- the director of "The Bourne Identity" and "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" -- has been attached to a movie re-telling of the riot at Attica.
In 1971, prisoners took over the state prison in Wyoming County, taking 33 guards hostage.
Then-Governor Rockefeller ordered the forcible re-taking of the prison.
In the end, 39 people were killed, including 10 guards -- still the bloodiest prison uprising in U.S. history.
Oscar winner Geoffrey Fletcher is set to write the screenplay, suggesting an appropriately gritty tone. Fletcher won the Oscar for the 2009 inner city movie Precious.
It won't be the first time Attica has been the inspiration for a movie -- there have three made-for-TV movies produced about the uprising, but this would be the first for theatrical release.
