Roven, Suckle Open “Damascus Gate”

Producers Charles Roven and Richard Suckle are teaming for the political thriller “Damascus Gate” for Sony Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on Robert Stone’s 1998 novel, Damascus Gate is set in a world in which a groundbreaking accord between Palestinians and Israelis is nearly complete when a burned-out journalist comes upon an extremist plot to sabotage the effort.

The title is a reference to a landmark gate in Jerusalem’s Old City. Eric Warren Singer will pen the screenplay and executive produce.
