Craig Adapting Brad Thor’s “Takedown”

Ryan Craig (“Small Town Saturday Night”) has been hired to pen an adaptation of the Brad Thor international action thriller novel “Takedown” at Warner Bros. Pictures says Heat Vision.

“Takedown” is the fifth novel in a series following Scot Harvath, a former Navy SEAL Team 6 member turned black-ops counterterrorism agent. In this story, Harvath must stop a terrorist mastermind who has unleashed chaos in New York City with his latest attack over Fourth of July weekend.

Bill Gerber and Casey Wasserman are producing. Thor has penned ten novels in the series thus far, Warners acquired the rights late last year and at the time were looking at the first novel in the series – “The Lions of Lucerne” – as a potential launching pad.
