DEADLINE

The Weinstein Company is close to winning an auction for a series of 16 bestselling novels by Andy McNab. The intention is to turn the books into a series revolving around former British Army regiment SAS agent Nick Stone. Already, Antoine Fuqua is in early discussions to direct the pilot and be an executive producer. CAA is running the auction. McNab, a former Special Air Service sergeant who was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal, has written 16 volumes based on Stone, who sounds like one tough guy who tries to mix covert work with life, almost like Luther if he was a British intelligence agent rather than a police detective.

Stone’s dilemmas along the course of the book series include finding a 7-year old daughter alongside the bodies of his slain SAS friend and his wife, and then keeping the kid alive when someone tries to finish the job; taking a side job kidnapping a Russian mobster to transport to St. Petersburg, only to find he has been deceived about the end game; or being promised American citizenship so he can live with the woman he loved, if he goes to Algeria and brings back the severed head of a money launderer.

In the last book, For Valour, which was published in 2016, Stone was tasked with tracking down a deadly sniper who just killed two men as he tries to keep a lid on top secret information. TWC will develop the property for series and set it up when it’s ready. It certainly sounds like fertile ground for edgy episodic fare. Fuqua got involved because he and TWC worked so well on his upcoming film, the boxing tale Southpaw with Jake Gyllenhaal. Fuqua is currently directing The Magnificent Seven, with an ensemble for the Western that is topped by his Equalizer and Training Day star Denzel Washington, and Jurassic World star Chris Pratt. Fuqua is repped by CAA.
