Moving fast, Universal has started work on an adaptation of Robert Ludlum’s last novel, “The Sigma Protocol.” Universal has seen great success with the adaptation of Ludlum’s Jason Bourne novels.
“The Sigma Protocol” is about a young investment banker who discovers a secret organization that is manipulating global economy. When the banker tries to shine a light on the scheme, he becomes a target.
Several drafts of the script have been written, but Iron Man writers Art Macum and Matt Holloway have been tapped to write the latest adaptation. The two are writing this before beginning to write the ‘Highlander’ remake.
