Three Days of Condor Gets TV Remake

Known mostly for blockbusters like the “Star Trek” and “Mission Impossible” franchises, Skydance Productions is continuing its move into TV space following the acclaimed WGN America series “Manhattan”.

Their next project will see them teaming with MGM and Paramount TV for a TV version of Sydney Pollack’s classic 1975 thriller “Three Days of the Condor”, though it’s unsure if this will be a limited or ongoing series adaptation.

Based on James Grady’s novel “Six Days of the Condor,” the original starred Robert Redford as a bookish CIA analyst who is working with his team in a New York safe house to find codes hidden within random publications. When he slips out to get lunch, the rest of his team is killed by a group of armed men led by a French assassin (Max von Sydow).

Returning to find his dead co-workers and himself in a trap, he goes into hiding with a woman (Faye Dunaway) whom he takes prisoner. Jason Smilovic and Todd Katzberg are writing the new incarnation.
