Malcolm Gladwell has been hired to polish David Arata’s drama script “Hexum” for Disney Pictures says Deadline.
The story follows a CIA threat-assessment analyst, an alternative-thinking brainiac who is relegated to a distant corner of the CIA where he assembles theories nobody pays attention to.
By connecting a series of seemingly random occurrences, he uncovers a sinister adversary planning an imminent global threat.
Gladwell is an acclaimed New Yorker writer best known for penning the books “The Tipping Point” and “Blink”. Arata’s writing credits include “Spy Games” and “Children of Men”.
