Wargames Scribe Adapts “Daemon”

Walter Parkes and David DiGilio are set to adapt Daniel Suarez’s upcoming techno thriller novel “Daemon” for Paramount Pictures says Variety.

The story centers on an iconic game designer who, before he died, set up a program to fight mankind.

This marks producer Parkes third screenplay, his first two being 1983’s “Wargames” and 1992’s “Sneakers” which both were lauded for their strong scripts.

The book, which is released in January, is already expected to spawn a sequel.
