Veteran PR pro Dan Klores has been spending more time making films lately, and the fruits of his labor continue to pay off.

HBO has cut a deal with Klores to turn his documentary “Crazy Love” into a “dramatic feature for HBO Films.”

According to Variety, “Klores won the 2008 Independent Spirit Award for director for his docu, which chronicled the obsessive love affair between Bronx lawyer Burt Pugach and Linda Riss. The pair became Gotham tabloid staples after she ended their romance and he hired thugs to blind and disfigure her by throwing acid in her face.”

Gawker’s Hamilton Nolan has the trailer here.
