PHILADELPHIA -

Frank Rizzo may soon walk again. And talk again.

Philadelphia's Theatre Exile has inked a deal to bring the best-selling biography of Philadelphia's larger-than-life mayor to the stage.

Joe Canuso, artistic director of Theatre Exile, tells The Philadelphia Inquirer (bit.ly/YCFbHC) it's still in the very early stages.

The play will be an adaptation of Sal Paolantonio's 1994 book, "Rizzo: The Last Big Man in Big City America."

Paolantonio is a former Inquirer politics reporter who now covers the NFL for ESPN.
