“Captain Phillips” director Paul Greengrass and producer Scott Rudin are re-teaming for a film adaptation of the true story tale “Agent Storm” for Sony Pictures.
The story centers on Morten Storm (pictured), a one-time Islamic radical who eventually became a double agent for the CIA, MI6 and Danish intelligence.
He ultimately must betray his friend and mentor al-Awlaki – al-Qaeda’s biggest threat to the West. Storm, Paul Cruickshank and Tim Lister wrote the book.
Greengrass is eyeing it as a directorial effort and also may adapt it.
