Book and film in the works based on the life of Lucchese soldier

“Find Me Guilty” producer Bob DeBrino has found a new mobster worthy of screen stardom — Anthony Accetturo Jr.
Anthony Jr., 55 — whose father, now 79, was a leader in the Lucchese crime family nicknamed “Tumac,” after Tumak, the caveman hero of the 1940 film “One Million B.C.” — was the youngest “made” member of the mob at 16 and claims to have survived 11 assassination attempts, including one on his wedding day about 30 years ago in New Jersey.
Three men with AK-47s shot at the limo he and his bride were in, Anthony Jr. told DeBrino, but the couple declined to cancel their reception and arrived unscathed. Accetturo said to the 300 guests, “It was just a minor inconvenience.”
DeBrino, a former NYPD officer, met with Accetturro at Frank Talerico’s Ocean Manor Resort Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., where Vin Diesel, Usher and Dennis Rodman were also hanging out.
DeBrino — who produced “Find Me Guilty,” in which Diesel starred as Jackie DiNorscio, who defended himself in the longest Mafia trial in US history — is now in talks with Accetturo for a book and film deal.
