By Garth Franklin Friday January 31st 2014 02:59PM

"Contagion" and "Side Effects" scribe Scott Z. Burns is in talks to adapt and direct "The Professor, the Bikini Model and the Suitcase Full of Trouble" for Fox Searchlight.

Based on Maxine Swann's New York Times Magazine feature and described as a "modern day Lolita," the story follows a divorced theoretical particle physicist who meets a Czech bikini model online.

The two begin to correspond and plan a life together, but she asks if he would deliver a special package to her - a request that puts him in serious danger.
