Techno-thriller. Shut up.

Michael Bay is pulling out a different sword for a change. Paramount has optioned the upcoming novel "Gideon's Sword," for Bay to produce. The novel, gang-banged by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, is the first techno-thriller in a series centering around the ridiculously-named character Gideon Crew. Sounds like a name Sylvester Stallone would use to check into hotel rooms. No word yet on what the plot entails beyond the "techno-thriller" description, which sadly means I didn't get to Photoshop Michael Bay pointing his glock at LARPers. We're all kinda sad about that here at Screen Junkies HQ. (Variety)
