Constructing a strong pact, producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Jason Blum are teaming up to produce a thriller feature tentatively entitled "The Shop" for Paramount Pictures, Variety has learned.
Since the project is based on an upcoming Vanity Fair article written by CIA journalist David Wise, no plot details are revealed as the film's producers didn't want to disclose any specifics pending publication of the article. However, it is confirmed that Kelley Sane is in charge to write the screenplay for the picture.
The co-author of best-selling book "The Invisible Government", Wise perhaps is best noted for penning a New York Times column in 1981 blasting President Reagan for pardoning former FBIer Mark Felt. His other works included "The Spy Who Got Away: The Inside Story of How the FBI's Robert Hanssen Betrayed America" and "Nightmover: How Aldrich Ames Sold the CIA to the KGB for $4.6 Million."
