Paul Greengrass linked to The Director
PAUL Greengrass could be about to direct The Director, an upcoming book by David Ignatius, as his follow-up to Captain Phillips.
The adaptation would reunite the British filmmaker with the team behind Captain Phillips, including producers Scott Rudin and Michael De Luca.
A cyber-thriller, The Director would follow a chain of events that are set in motion when a teenager walks into the American consulate in Hamburg and claims the CIA has been hacked.
The new director of the agency, in the post for less than a week, is then forced to team up with the CIA’s young, in-house geek for a worldwide mole hunt filled with double-crosses.
The book is due to be published in June 2014.
