Universal Does Secret Service Drama

Universal Pictures is developing a reality-based action film focusing on the recruitment and training of Secret Service agents reports Deadline.

Greg Poirier (“The Spy Next Door,” “National Treasure: Book of Secrets”) wrote the script based on an article by Laura Blumenfeld in the Washington Post Magazine.

The writer went through the training program which included shooting weapons, hand-to-hand combat, psychological and other training methods. Unlike other law-enforcement branches, applicants don’t need a law enforcement background to apply.

Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher will produce.
