Secret Transmission: Daniel Silva Spy Novels To Be Turned Into Movies
Just kidding. Anyway, Universal apparently sees this as a Bourne-style spy franchise. Which is good for them, since there's no shortage of material to adapt - Allon has appeared in 10 Silva novels so far, with the latest, Portrait of a Spy, coming out in July.
The other interesting aspect of this story is one of its producers - the universally beloved Jeff Zucker, former head of NBCUniversal. His involvement apparently comes from his close friendship with Silva, proving that he does indeed have at least one friend. (via Deadline)
