Paramount Pictures has acquired the film rights to former journalist Neal Bascomb’s non-fiction WWII action-thriller novel “Sabotage”.
Michael Bay is set to produce the film, and will develop it as a potential directing vehicle.
Set in 1942, the story follows a brilliant scientist flees the Gestapo to inform the Allies that the Nazis are secretly developing a nuclear program at an industrial fortress in the mountains of Norway’s Telemark region.
The Allies assemble a fearless team of nine Norwegian refugee commandos to pull off an impossibly daring assault on the fortress which is poised on impenetrable, icy cliffs.
