Veteran screenwriter Lem Dobbs (“Dark City,” “The Limey,” “The Company You Keep”) has been hired to pen the script for the film adaptation of Frederick Forsyth’s latest thriller novel “The Kill List”.
“Snow White and the Hunstman” director Rupert Sanders is still onboard to helm the project which Nick Wechsler, Steve Schwartz and Paula Mae Schwartz (“The Counselor”) are set to produce.
The story follows a U.S. Special Forces agent tasked with tracking down a powerful terrorist in a high-stakes cat-and-mouse game.
Forsyth penned such legendary works as “The Day of the Jackal,” “The Odessa File” and “The Dogs of War” which all saw film adaptations. ‘Kill List’ though would mark the first adaptation of a Forsyth novel since 1987’s “The Fourth Protocol” starring Michael Caine and a young Pierce Brosnan.
