George Nolfi ("The Adjustment Bureau") is set to re-write and is attached to direct a film adaptation of Michael Dobbs' 2008 novel "One Minute to Midnight" at Fox 2000 says The Hollywood Reporter.

Dobbs, a Washington Post reporter, utilised previously untapped American, Soviet, and Cuban sources to produce an authoritative hour-by-hour chronicle of the Cuban missile crisis.

Included are details of how close we came - from Khrushchev's plan to destroy Guantánamo Bay, the activities of CIA agents inside Cuba, and the crash landing of an American F-106 jet with a live nuclear weapon on board.

Robert S. Edwards wrote the previous draft while John Davis is producing.
