The right to ‘The Matarese Circle’ have just been acquired by MGM, and set up as a Denzel Washington starrer.
Taking place during the Cold War, The Matarese are an international crime circle. The book tells the story of two rival intelligence agents (KBG and CIA), who put their differences behind them in order to put a stop to the Matarese.
The pair adapting the book are Michael Brandt and Derek Haas of 3:10 to Yuma fame.
This is no doubt an exciting property for MGM. Ludlum’s Bourne series has seen great success over at Universal, and they no doubt have high hopes for this one as well.
