Millenium Films has acquired the film rights to FBI agent turned author Noah Boyd’s novel “The Bricklayer” says The Hollywood Reporter.
Gerard Butler is attached to star as rogue former FBI agent Steve Vail who is now a Chicago bricklayer. The agency reaches out to him to help them track down and combat a criminal group that is demanding an escalating series of multi-million dollar ransom payments. A female deputy director is assigned to work with him as his partner.
Hanna Weg (“Enigma”) is adapting the novel. Butler, Alan Siegel and Danielle Robinson are producing.
