Will Gluck ("Easy A") is in talks to direct and produce a film adaptation of Geoffrey Gray's action-comedy novel "Skyjack: The Hunt For D.B. Cooper" for CBS Films says Deadline.

In 1971, Cooper hijacked a Boeing 727 and demanded $200,000 and parachutes. He jumped out over the Pacific Northwest and was never caught.

Keith Bunin will adapt the script. The book tracks his story from the perspectives of three different people claiming to be him.
