Warner Bros. picks up rights to Morrell's book

BrotherhoodoftheRose.jpgDavid Morrell who wrote the book that became First Blood back in 1982 has had his next novel, "The Brotherhood of the Rose", picked up by Warner Bros. The story centers on two orphans raised by a CIA operative to be assassins, only to become targets themselves.

We hear it from Variety that it had previously been made as a two-parter espionage drama for NBC in the late eighties, five years after the novel was originally published. Sounds all too familiar as far as plots go, I guess interest will get peaked as the project gets some huge director & stars attached. With Warner Bros. taking it I'm sure we can count on that. Who would you like to see take the helms?

I'd be interested to see where this goes - I loved the original mini-series, and I've been a huge fan of David Morse ever since.

I really think it does depend on what names get attached, even on the screenplay adaptation level, but it's interesting to keep an eye on these things.

I knew nothing of the mini-series or the novel until I stumbled into this story, I must say. Good to see someone does.
