Young Adapts Archer’s “False Impression”

Brian D. Young (“180 Degrees”) has been hired to pen a re-write of the film adaptation of Jeffrey Archer’s 2005 novel “False Impression” at New Franchise Media says The Hollywood Reporter.

An action-crime novel set on several continents, the story begins with a woman who escaped the 9/11 attack after being fired by her banker boss. She then helps a British lady try to sell a Van Gogh painting while both a mercenary and an FBI agent are on her trail.

New Franchise acquired the worldwide film, TV and digital rights to ten of Archer’s novels a while back with Richard Regen working on a script based on “A Matter of Honor” and its follow-up “Honor Among Thieves” for Kennedy/Marshall. Similarly Gale Anne Hurd is developing a TV adaptation of Archer’s”The Eleventh Commandment”.
