Hurd Adapts Archer’s “Eleventh Commandment”

Last week it was announced that Frank Marshall was developing a film adaptation of Jeffrey Archer’s novel “Matter of Honor”.

Today comes word that “Aliens” and “The Walking Dead” producer Gale Anne Hurd is planning a TV adaptation of Archer’s “The Eleventh Commandment” reports Reuters.

The book follows Connor Fitzgerald, a deadly CIA assassin who hides the details of his career from his family. Just days away from retirement, the agency’s director becomes bent on making Fitzgerald the patsy for a fake assassination on a Russian presidential candidate.

No writer or network is yet attached and it’s not known what format the adaptation will take on the small screen (ie. mini-series, limited series, regular series).
