Topical adaptation alert!
Paul Greengrass and Scott Rudin - the team behind the Oscar-nominated Captain Phillips - look set to team up once again, and this time, it's political.
The duo have jumped aboard the adaptation of the real-life spy thriller Agent Storm: My Life Inside Al-Qaeda. The film, like the novel, will follow Morten Storm, the (brilliantly named) Dane who went from an unruly teenager, to an Islamic Jihadist in Yemen, and eventually a CIA and MI6-recruited double agent.
All of which actually happened.
Sony have acquired the rights to the book - and though there's no word yet on a screenwriter, Greengrass and Rudin are now developing the project, with themselves as director and producer respectively.
Now, the big question - who'll play Storm himself?
Tom Hanks is likely too old to play Storm - and, sadly, so is Matt Damon. Could this be a chance for a younger actor on the up to make it to that Academy podium?
We're looking at you, Jonah Hill...
(Plus, the meaty part of Anwar al-Awlaki, the radical cleric who takes Storm under his wing? Classic Hanx...)
[Agent Storm: My Life Inside Al Qaeda](movie:2148310) is still in development - but the book is currently available for purchase...
What do you guys think? Who would you like to see play Agent Storm?
