On the day of its re-release in theaters, “Captain Phillips” director Paul Greengrass and producer Scott Rudin are said to be reuniting for a film adaptation of “Body of Lies” author David Ignatius’ upcoming spy novel “The Director” at Sony Pictures.
The story follows Graham Weber, a man who has been director of the CIA for less than a week. It’s at this point a kid walks into the American consulate in Hamburg and says the agency has been hacked, and that he has a list of agents names to prove it.
Weber seeks help from the unstable yet charismatic James Morris, the head of the CIA’s Internet Operations Center and the pair go on a mole hunt through the hacker underground of Europe and the United States.
Greengrass isn’t officially involved at this point, but is planning to adapt the script and direct the film.
