Fuqua, McNab, Weinsteam Team For TV Series

The Weinstein Company is reportedly close to winning an auction for the rights to produce a TV series based on the character of former SAS agent Nick Stone, the hero of sixteen bestselling novels by Andy McNab.

Antoine Fuqua is in early discussions to direct the pilot and be an executive producer on the show which will adapt the books about the Stone character who struggles to mix life with his covert work.

In the books Stone left British Intelligence after the shooting of three IRA volunteers in Gibraltar, now he roams the world as somewhat of a mercenary just trying to keep his head above water.

McNab is a former Special Air Service sergeant who was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal.
