From Daily Variety:
Nick Cassavetes will direct Bombing Harvey as his next film. The film is based on a true story about a man who tries to cover his gambling losses by planting a bomb and extorting $3 Million from a Lake Tahoe casino. The 1980 incident ended when authorities detonated the device and destroyed Harvey's Resort Hotel. The bomber was John Birges, a Hungarian scientist who came to the U.S. and became a major landscape contractor in California.
